The 8 PM evening at Carnegie Hall will feature Patinkin singing tunes from his "Mamaloshen" recording, which was released on CD by Nonesuch Records in February 1998. The recording mixes Yiddish standards ("Oyfn Pripetshik," "Belz," "Raisins and Almonds") with translated American numbers (Paul Simon's "American Tune," "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"). Patinkin will be joined by the New Yiddish Chorale and cantor Rebecca Garfein. Zalmen Mlotek is the musical director for the Carnegie evening.
Mandy Patinkin won a Tony Award for his role as Che in the Broadway mounting of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Evita.

An Emmy Award winner for his work on "Chicago Hope," his other screen credits include "Yentl," "Ragtime," "Dick Tracy," "Broken Glass," "Life with Mikey" and "The Princess Bride." Patinkin's latest solo recording, "Mandy Patinkin Sings Sondheim," is available on the Nonesuch label.
