Classrooms Without Borders in collaboration with The Embassy of the Czech Republic, invites you to join us online for a talk with musician/composer Peter Gyori and founder of the project Light of Understanding on September 30, 2021, at 4:30 pm EDT. Delve into the beauty and connections of his music during this online event.
With humor and nostalgia, musician/composer Peter Gyori tells the story of his life and various projects trying to unite communities from all possible and impossible corners of the earth. He focuses on the current challenges facing European communities and the growing feeling of “discomfort” of being Jewish in Europe. Through his project Light of Understanding, he brings together artists and audiences of different ethnicities, religions, and cultural backgrounds, for concerts simultaneously recorded in a church and a synagogue. Join us as Peter performs samples of his work and leads us through the intricacies of his life – from growing up in a Communist country, ignorance of his Jewish origin, playing piano in the lobby of a Dead Sea hotel and meeting Rabbi Mordechai who changed his life forever.
