In this inspiring hour, Charles Heller performs his song cycle Tramvay Lider, a musical setting of Yiddish poems written by acclaimed Yiddish poet Shimen Nepom who worked as a College St. streetcar conductor until his death in 1939 . The poems tell of life on the streetcar, and this performance is a lovely example of Toronto culture echoing through the decades. With pianist Brahm Goldhamer.

Added bonus: Ontario Jewish Archives’ presentation about the old Toronto streetcars.

Presented in partnership with the Ontario Jewish Archives
