Asylum Arts Small Grants Recipient David Freeman will be performing the piece on November 14, 2015 in Brooklyn. A Tribute to Yedidia Admon is an exploration of the life and music of the late Israeli composer, Yedidia Admon. David will work with an ensemble of musicians to arrange, perform, and ultimately record a five-song EP of Admon’s compositions. This process will serve as an investigation into Admon's life with the intent to reveal the impact he had on Jewish music and to highlight why he was so instrumental in the development of Israeli identity in the early 1900's. Yedidia Admon (1894-1982) is recognized as an influential figure in Israeli history as a composer who broke new ground, creating music that was an inclusive blend of his own Jewish roots, melding Arabic, Yemenite, and Eastern Jewish music. Admon's compositions are rich in history and spirit which deserve greater visibility.
