For its Humanities Day performance, the New Budapest Orpheum Society performs a diverse repertoires of 20th-century Jewish music. Drawing on diverse genres and languages—Hebrew, Yiddish, German, and Russian, to name a few—the songs of the NBOS have been uncovered from the destruction of pogroms and the Holocaust; others filled the smoky backrooms of cabarets; and still others are among the most exquisite examples of European art song, past and present.
