We have already made active
connections with leaders of Jewish communities in Mexico City and
Buenos Aires. The interest from our South American cousins is
immediate and enthusiastic. YIVO has connections in Paris and
throughout Europe. Susanne Katchko, principal performer of the PDP,
is fluent in French, Spanish, Hebrew has intermediate-level Yiddish
knowledge, and also has a foundation in Russian, Italian and German.
She has sung in Farsi and intends to sing in Arabic and any other
language which will allow us to build bridges between people and
cultures. Music is the language of peace. We will be able to
communicate with worldwide audiences.
