Download PDF for this date

Prof. Heinrich Schalit, of Munich, regarded as the foremost living composer of Jewish music in Germany, organist of the Munich Temple, is expected to arrive in America today to act as guest conductor of the music at Temple B’rith Kodesh of this city during the winter.

The synagogue compositions of Prof. Schalit are sung in all the leading temples in Germany and many of his Jewish works have been rendered by outstanding non-Jewish musical organizations there. His musical settings of Heine’s poems are in the repertoire of many leading concert artists and his instrumental compositions have been played by prominent chamber music quartettes and symphony orchestras.
