The Newport String Project is excited to share the next concert of Hidden Newport, a virtual concert series showcasing some of Newport’s most beautiful and unusual locations through virtual chamber music concerts. This performance, premiering on April 25th at 2pm on our YouTube Channel, features the Touro Synagogue, a site of deep historical prominence in the Jewish community in Newport. The Touro is the oldest synagogue building still standing in the United States, and the only surviving Synagogue in the country dating back to the colonial era. The program will include works by Joseph Haydn, Erwin Schulhoff, George Gershwin, and Hajime Kōmatsu.
