For one magical musical evening, the FleytMuzik ensemble will perform selections from the Dubiecko Klezmorim, founded back in Poland by the grandfather of HPCT-CAE member Milton Frant. Conducted by Abraham Leib Frand, known as Leibish the Musician, the Dubiecko Klezmorim featured his children on the violin, viola, drums, flute, and bass. They were hired for weddings, festivals, circuses, and Purim shpils, not only in Dubiecko, but also in surrounding shtetlach.

Join Sharon Frant-Brooks for a pre-concert discussion at 7 pm. Frant-Brooks, daughter of Milton Frant, will give a personal account of her efforts to bring the sounds of her great-grandfather’s band, the Dubiecko Klezmorim, back to life in Dubiecko, Poland, the very place where the band was silenced by the Nazis in the Shoah. Open to all ticket holders at no additional charge.

Adult tickets: $25 before December 5th or $30 at the door. Student tickets: $10 before December 5th or $15 at the door. Children 12 years and younger: Free
