Salon/Sanctuary's program of works by the Jewish-Italian composer Salamone Rossi, (c. 1570 – 1630), is back by popular demand, performed by the internationally acclaimed vocal sextet, The Western Wind, with guest Cantor Daniel Singer. Lutenist Charles Weaver & harpsichordist Gabe Shuford accompany.

Featuring liturgical works in Hebrew composed for the synagogue and secular Italian madrigals composed for the Gonzaga court, the program also includes selections from Rossi's compositions for the theatrical troupe of the Ghetto, enjoyed by Jews and Gentiles alike at the height of Counter-Reformation segregation.

Please join us for a pre-concert lecture by scholar Francesco Spagnolo, PhD, Curator of The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art & Life at the University of California, Berkeley, and a host for RAI Radiotre in Rome.

This concert is co-presented with the Stephen Wise Free Synagogue and Centro Primo Levi.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
