I came here to post something else, but I saw your reference to Michael Tilson Thomas, Kathy, and it reminded me of the NPR interview with him that I heard yesterday.

Apparently he's from a Jewish family (his father changed the last name from Thomashefsky) in which all the men for generations were either Jewish cantors or Yiddish performers. It was a fascinating conversation, promoting a PBS special on Great Performances which was produced by him about his grandparents: The Thomashefskys: Music and Memories of a Life in the Yiddish Theater - About the Program | Great Performances | PBS

Might be something to look into
