This episode is particularly special because it doubles as the latest installment of the Breman’s Molly Blank Concert Series. The program is a celebration of Jewish contributions to classical music and will feature music by Jewish composers, Jewish themes in music and young Jewish musicians.

“Over The Rainbow” is one of the most beloved songs of the 20th century, but its composer, Harold Arlen, hasn’t received the same acclaim as his contemporaries like George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Johnny Mercer.

To amend that, the Breman Museum in collaboration with Atlanta's Theatrical Outfit is dedicating a special concert to Arlen, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow: The Music of Harold Arlen.” It is part of the Molly Blank Jewish Concert series and will include storytelling, dance and plenty of song.
