Pop Torch: Ellen Woloshin in Concert
Sunday, October 2, 2022 at 2:00 PM Community Room
This show encapsulates music of love and loss, and the depth of that experience through the decades. Conceived by songwriter and torch songstress Ellen Woloshin, Woloshin seamlessly combines her interpretations of classic songs (George Harrison, the Gershwins, Joni Mitchell and more) with her own original songs. The art of torch-singing lies in its effect on the listener. Woloshin transcends musical genres with this gift.
New Yorker Ellen Woloshin is the daughter of celebrated jingle writer Sid Woloshin, and made her own early way spinning jingles for some well-known American brands. For some time, she’s written successfully for other people, including Dionne Warwick, Ben Vereen and LaToya Jackson. It’s an impressive career path that has been invaluable in honing her gift for blending instant accessibility with personal reference while stirring the souls of her audience.
This concert is made possible by Friends of Hart Library.

Shrub Oak natives and brothers, Alan and Julian Briones form a
voice-guitar duo that meets in the middle of their two worlds of opera
and Jazz. Their programs include folk music and tango from Argentina,
the country their parents immigrated from, as well as classical
selections and American standards. Both brothers are accomplished
professional musicians who relish every chance they get to play
together and to share their music.
