Polyphony is the first-ever classical music Conservatory from the city of Nazareth. Through music, students at Polyphony are given the chance to transcend limiting narratives about ‘the other’ and see the world beyond the boundaries of race, religion and cultural heritage. Since its formation in 2006, Polyphony has engaged over 40,000 Arab and Jewish young people.
“Houston Congregation for Reform Judaism has a long history of building bridges of understanding and cooperation between communities of faith,“ writes Rabbi Steve. “So it is with great joy that we introduce Polyphony to Houston. Please join us for an evening of classical music and cross-cultural dialogue and bring friends from all faiths and cultures, as we generate harmony in humanity through music.” JPB Board Members Rabbi Steve Gross, Dr. Danna Kurtin, Philip Kensinger and Fr. Nicholas look forward to seeing you at this world-class event.
