BERNIE KAPLAN, THE MUSIC IN ME CONCERT:
Congregation Bnai Zion played host to a wonderful musical event that served to debut songs by long-time CBZ member BERNIE KAPLAN Bernie, a member of the Bnai Zion choir, does not know how to play an instrument or notate music, but in his younger days he composed songs in his head while driving from state-to-state for work. For the past two years, the talented NANCY 3 HOFFMAN has worked with Bernie to solidify the songs that his mind held; Nancy assisted with lyrics, harmonies and so on.
The hard work came to fruition at the April 19th concert, narrated by Nancy 3, at which popular local performers ERIC HALEY and MICHAEL ROBINSON beautifully presented Bernies music. Michael Robinson also lent his musical expertise to enhancing the final arrangements for Bernies songs. CBZs sanctuary was packed for this event and the audience even included Bernies cousin, Rachelle Elias, who travelled from California to be in Key West for this special occasion.
The program included a song composed for Bernies sister, Rose Einhorn, who was not able to attend. A sumptuous reception – prepared by Rebetzen Nadia Dudai and sponsored by Bernies sister, Mae Mcmahan followed the musical program. Many others assisted in making the event a success, including: Rabbi Shimon Dudai, Dr. Fred Covan, synagogue president, and The CBZ Board of Directors, Kenny Weschler, Connie Gilbert, Liz Young, Karen Grant Margil, Karen Leonard & Aaron Wechter, BG Carter, and Lucy Page & Jan Bergh.
Together with his two sisters, Mae & Rose, Bernie has been an integral member of the Key West community for decades. Being able to experience the tunes that Bernie held within him and to learn of the path followed to achieve that was an exceptional opportunity for the audience members lucky enough to attend.
Thank you Bernie and thank you to everyone who made this fabulous event possible!!
