Jan Peerce Enchants 3,500 at Shaarey
Zedek Concert; Takes Pride in Having
Shared Podiums With Greatest Hazanim

Jan Peerce remains the
master of his art. At 76,
with an unmatched record
of operatic and hazanic per-
forinances for more than six
decades, he continues to be
the darling of the masses,
admired by music-lovers,
adored when he chants can-
torial and liturgical hymns.
This became evident
when the 3,500 at the con-
cert he performed at Cong.
Shaarey Zedek on Tuesday
evening demonstrated their
appreciation, cheering him
for his renditions.
He displayed his charm as
a singer who has dominated
public functions, as the
entertainer who becomes
one of the audience and does
not turn down a request for
an encore. The feeling often
crept through the record
audience: why should he re-
fuse an encore when he
loves his music so much!
The demonstration for
Peerce was like a holiday
experience. Only on Rosh
Hashana and Yom Kip-
pur is the audience
matched. The parking
lots were filled, there
were hundreds of cars on
the grass adjoining the
lots, the security force in
evidence on Holy Days
was there to watch over
the crowds.
The program was a mix-
ture of everything that
made Peerce popular
through the decades — the
operatic, the cantorial, the
prayers, the folk songs. He
was superb in all these di-
visions. Allen Rogers was
Peerce's piano accompanist.

press conference on Mon-
day, at Shaarey Zedek,
Harvey Weisberg told of his
parents' love for music and
their interest in establish-
ing such a program as part
of the synagogue's cultural
commission.
Mrs. Louis (Celia) Ruda,
who directs the synagogue's -
public relations activities,
presided at the press confer-
ence and Mrs. Walter
(Leah) Field, chairman of
the cultural commission,
spoke of the communal and
synagogue appreciation of
the Weisberg gift. She
applauded the role in the
preparations for the concert
of Cantor Chaim Najman
and the efficiency with
which Mrs. Joseph (Elsie)
Deutch organized the event
as chairman of ticket distri-
bution.
Describing his experi-
ences as a vocalist, after
he had first commenced
what might have been a
career as a violinist,
Peerce started as a choir
boy in his father's
synagogue. He has to his
credit 28 years in the
Metropolitan Opera and
he spoke of his great
pride in being a vocalist.
He explained that there
has always been an influ-
ence of the hazanic, the can-
torial art, upon popular



American music, and he
commented that so many of
the composers were either
sons of hazanim or had sung
in synagogue choirs.
He also pointed to the
hasidic rhythm that has
gained a role in music, and
he took occasion to praise
the Chabad Lubavitch
movement which he has
learned to admire. He told of
having attended a Chabad
camp and Chabad
synagogues and of the es-
teem he has acquired for
Lubavitch services.
Speaking about musi-
cians, Peerce commended
the activities of Karl Haas
of WJR Radio and his na-
tional interpretive radio
programs, calling him a
great musician
Speaking about music
in Israel, Peerce men-
tioned some of the most
notable there and he ex-
pressed regret that there
is so little of the Yiddish
folk songs heard there.
He expressed the hope
that it will be improved
upon.
Attending as guests at
the concert were residents
of the Jewish Home for the
Aged and the Federation
Apartments and Russians
who are studying English at
the Jewish Center.
