This Sunday, the Breman Museum presents the next in its Molly Blank Concert Series; a performance of From the Top. The NPR program showcases America’s top young classical musicians.

One of the foremost American pianists of her generation, Lara Downes will be the guest host. This one-of-a-kind concert will revolve around the theme of Jewish Music.

Lois Reitzes spoke with Downes about the range of her artistic vision and how the selections on Sunday’s program at the Bremen illustrate Jewish music themes.
