Bonia Shur’s compositions are heard in virtually every Reform Jewish congregation throughout the world, but you don’t have to be Jewish to love his music — religious and secular groups of every persuasion commission work from the composer who celebrates his 90th birthday next year.

Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion celebrates Shur’s musical legacy with a free concert at historic Plum Street Temple. Soloists include American and international cantors, musicians from CCM and the CSO. A native of Latvia, Shur moved to Cincinnati in 1974 to serve as Director of Liturgical Arts. He retired in 1993 but never stopped composing and arranging. 7 p.m. Plum Street Temple, 8th and Plum streets, Downtown. hucinci.org.
