The Tower Music project is a dream come true for this very special percussionist, composer, and human being. Mr. Bertolozzi was granted permission to pursue “Musique de la Tour” by the Eiffel Tower’s administration after proving the care he took with his previous project Bridge Music project, “using techniques that would not damage structural integrity and providing safe conditions for the musicians.”

Joe is loved as Vassar Temple’s organist and our congregation could not be more proud of his accomplishments. So it is a treat to hear Joe tell us his story first hand.  It is sure to inspiring and interesting.  After all, it’s not every day that someone “plays” the Eiffel Tower – in fact it is a first!  

Friday’s services and Joseph Bertolozzi’s presentation are open to the public.  Vassar Temple members are urged to come show their support for Joe, and for what is sure to be a pleasurable Shabbat service all around.
