"From Delancey Street to the
Met," which features several
Yiddish art and theater
songs, some pieces from ma-
jor operas like La Boheme and
Romeo and Juliette, and a col-
lection of French nursery
songs by composer Francis
Poulenc.
One notable member of the
audience was Detroiter Em-
ma Schaver, a former profes-
sional opera singer who is a
long-time friend of the Joffe
family. Panush remembers
Schaver singing Yiddish
songs at parties in her
parents' home, while young
Rena sat at her feet and
listened.
"We need something like
this to wake us up every now
and then," said Rose Schutz-
man, another audience
member who came by bus
from her Detroit home. "I
don't get out very often, and
this was worth coming out
for."
Panush's mother beamed
with pride as friends and
relatives came to con-
gratulate her after the
concert.
"I always knew my
daughter would be a singer,"
she said. "While I was preg-
nant with her, we attended a
concert where there was a
woman soloist. It came to me
in a flash that the woman
who was singing was my
daughter. So, when she was
born, I named her Rena,
which means 'singing with
rejoicing' in Hebrew."
