Shirim, "Klezmer Nutcracker, Cambridge, MA, 7 Dec, 2014

logoShirim Klezmer Orchestra THE KLEZMER NUTCRACKER Sunday, December 7, 3:00pm Club Passim 47 Palmer St, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138 Tix: www.clubpassim.org Shirim performs the Klezmer Nutcracker and other Hanukah fun at Club Passim. Shirim's legendary klezmer rendition of the Nutcracker is a brilliant cross-cultural achievement which is fun, serious and rocking all at once. They distill the classic ballet suite down to its folky essence and will change the way you think of Tchaikovsky forever. Emphasizing the Eastern European elements of the score with witty intelligence and playful irreverence, Shirim redefines the modern melting pot of "world music." Its overwhelming virtuosity in both the performance and musical conception harken back to the manic genius of Spike Jones' classical parodies and the artistry of Ellington's classic transcription.

Ihtimanska

Ihtimanska Sunday, December 14, 8:00pm BSOMA - Bluesfest School of Music and Art 450 Churchill Ave, Ottawa, Ontario $10 Ihtimanska is a sweet dialogue between the saxophone and accordion sharing melodies from Bulgaria and Turkey. The gentle complicity is an unusual blending of voices drawing on their musical experiences through the teaching and encounters of inspiring musicians from New York, Istanbul and beyond. The duo combination allows music to flow naturally, and allows for a sensitive personal interpretation with a touch of creativity on beautiful traditional pieces that evoke joy, sadness, love and gratitude to life.

Jewish Nightlife: An Evening of Celebration with Poetry and Music, Berkeley, CA, 18 Dec 2014

Jewish Nightlife: An Evening of Celebration with Poetry and Music | Featuring UC Berkeley Students and the Piyut Bay Area Project directed by Yair Harel


Thursday, December 18, 5:00pm - 8:00pm
The Magnes
2121 Allston Way,
Berkeley, California 94704

Jewish Nightlife is a multi-disciplinary exploration of the nexus between the ritual performance of Jewish texts and social changes across Jewish history, including Hebrew poetry, music, and synagogue liturgy in Europe, in North Africa, the Middle East, and present-day Israel.

During the Fall Semester 2014, the project involved research, teaching, performance, and community participation. Thirty UC Berkeley undergraduate students participated in a new UC Berkeley course, team-taught by dr. Francesco Spagnolo, Curator of The Magnes, and Yair Harel, Schusterman Visiting Artist. During the same period, a group comprised of graduate students, artists, educators and clergy from the San Francisco Bay Area met weekly at The Magnes, researching and performing piyyutim, or Hebrew liturgical poems.

To celebrate the completion of this project, the program will include solo and ensemble performances by UC Berkeley students (5-6 pm) and participants in the Piyut Bay Area Project (7-8 pm), led by Yair Harel.

The program is free and open to the public.

"A wonderfully inventive take on the usual seasonal fare." Time Out ****

This story begins in a tiny vilage, more or less covered in snow, where a Hanukhah latke, a fried potato pancake, is born screaming. The latke jumps from the boiling pan and races through the wintery village, deep in the throes of festive preparations. Lost amongst the snowy landscape and Christmas lights, will our Latke ever find where it belongs?


This adaptation of the absurdly funny Lemony Snicket story is vividly brought to life in Tall Stories' unique physical style, with live music, lots of laughs and a screaming potato pancake.
