Friends of Klezmer ConcertFriends of Klezmer Concert
Tuesday, September 10, 3:30pm - 5:00pm

Friends of Klezmer, organized in 2016 by Stan Greenberg, will be performing with clarinet, accordion, bass, cello, and drum. They will be playing bulgars, horas, shers, turkishe and Hassidic music. The music will make you want to tap your feet, clap your hands, and even sing and dance along. It will be a lot of fun!!

Klezmer (meaning musical instruments) is the traditional music of the Jews of Eastern Europe with early references dating back to the 16th century. It was played by roaming musicians who traveled through different countries including Rumania, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Turkey and Russia. As they traveled, they played for anyone who would pay them, incorporating new sounds and rhythms as they went along. In the last decade, this music has attracted a robust re-interest in the American Jewish Community from Sheepshead Bay to Seattle.

Complimentary refreshments are served at 3:30; the program begins at 4:00pm. Free and open to the entire community.

Where: Larchmont Avenue Church, Russell Hall, 60 Forest Park Avenue, Larchmont
