Sunday @ the Segal - The Times They Are A Changin'

Mar 01, 2020 - Mar 01, 2020 | Segal Theatre

The Times They Are A Changin’ is a concert spectacular celebrating some of the greatest Jewish musicians in history including Bob Dylan, Mama Cass, Simon and Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen, and Carole King. This Sunday @ the Segal panel will take a look at how these artists, who's work gave voice a generation, have withstood the test of time. We will explore how and why this music continues to touch people of all ages and how we continue to find new relevance in it today.

For those who cannot make it, Sunday @ the Segal will be live-streamed on our Facebook page. To watch, simply go to our Facebook page at 11 a.m. and the video will start playing when we are live.
