Sarah Gottesman Lubin Program For Creative Arts & Crafts

Sarah Gottesman Lubin was an avid crafter who especially enjoyed the soft arts of quilting and needlepoint. She was an active member of the Pomegranate Guild. After her passing in December 2007, the Sarah Gottesman Lubin Program for Creative Arts and Crafts was established in her memory at the JCC so that others could explore and enjoy the exciting world of crafts and culture. This endowment provides opportunities for people to experience the sheer love and joy of creating something of beauty with their own hands. Pre-registration required for all creative arts classes.

The Lion in Winter: Brahms and His Late Piano Music

with Steven Masi, Faculty Member of the JCC Thurnauer School of Music
In his last years, Brahms created a style of short piano work that explored his innermost feelings. These pieces that he called “Lullabies of my Discontent” are intimate, personal expressions that inspire inward reflection from the pianist and listener. Autumnal in nature, they are the summation of Brahms’ art. In this class Steven Masi will perform and discuss op. 117 and op. 118, from both a musical and biographical point of view.
