The Grammy-nominated New Budapest Orpheum Society, an Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Chicago, draws upon a wide range of repertoires, many forgotten, others preserved in European archives, all poignantly bearing witness to the great tradition of Jewish cabaret.  They will perform works from their repertoire and works recently rediscovered by Performing the Jewish Archive researchers.
