  The Jewish Heritage Foundation of North Carolina has been collecting the stories of the state's Jews for years. Now, those recorded interviews are part of an original musical composition - "Down Home: The Cantata."

Host Frank Stasio plays excerpts of the piece and talks with composer Alejandro Rutty; Triangle Jewish Chorale conductor Lorena Guillen; and Foundation president Eric Meyers.
