WQXR Features Itzhak Perlman’s Chanukah Radio Party

Join violinist Itzhak Perlman at 5 pm on Dec. 24 and 9 pm on Dec. 26, as he tells the story of the Jewish festival of lights and shares his favorite recordings for the holiday — some serious, some silly. This special features music from Perlman’s radio-addicted childhood in Israel, including evocative songs in Yiddish and Ladino, classical music that revolves around the Maccabee heroes of the Chanukah story and gems by American folk singers.
