Description:

Now in the band’s 26th year, Metropolitan Klezmer, formed by drummer /leader Eve Sicular, brings eclectic exuberance to Yiddish musical genres from all over the map. Performing vibrant versions of gems from wedding dance, trance, folk, swing, and tango styles, as well as soundtrack material from vintage Yiddish films, Metropolitan Klezmer reinvents tradition with irreverence, respect, and joy. This performance also features a rarely heard repertoire including the group’s own version of a Yiddish-rooted Soviet animation score, and a gorgeous range of imaginative original compositions.

The concert is preceded by a klezmer workshop at 6:30 p.m., and a jam session follows the performance.

Location:
