Jane Peppler
Jane Peppler grew up in Chappaqua, NY and graduated from Yale University with a degree in Russian language and literature. She played and sang music of the British Isles with the Pratie Heads from 1981 to 2013. She was long-time music director of the cantor corps at Judea Reform Congregation and director of the Triangle Jewish Chorale for fourteen years. She has performed all over the US and internationally and currently performs with world-music ensemble Mappamundi. Jane Peppler now researches and performs little-known Yiddish theatre music from before the Holocaust. She is also a prolific translator, having translated three novels by Jacob Dineson, numerous articles, and, of course, Yiddish songs. Her extensive creative and technical skills have led to her prolific and entertaining animations rescuing once-popular Yiddish songs from oblivion.
