A local nonprofit, the Jewish Cultural Orchestra (JCO), will hold a concert on Jan. 29 at the Tempe Center for the Arts, performed by members of the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra. The program will consist of 30 theme songs from popular television shows, all of which were written by Jewish composers. The songs will span decades, from “Leave It to Beaver” to “Gilligan’s Island,” from “Love Boat” to “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

The programming of the concert speaks to a key facet of JCO’s mission: to educate the community about the contribution of Jewish composers to American music.
