More info/reservations

Delve into the wonderful world of klezmer with members of the London Klezmer Quartet. Ilana Cravitz (violin), Susi Evans (clarinet and accordion) and Indra Buraczewska (double bass & vocals) will take you deep into freylekhs, bulgars, zhoks, khosidls and terkishers, looking at the modes, ornamentation and rhythms that characterise traditional Eastern European Jewish folk music. Play in a klezmer band, be part of the ever-growing Halsway Klezmer Kapelye (big band), and learn steps for the dances that the music traditionally accompanies. Reading music is not essential as we'll be working by ear quite a bit, but we will also look at interpreting written music. All instruments are welcome. For players of grade 4 and above or equivalent.

Waystation is Ariel Luckey and Lila Sklar. Combining old world klezmer and hip hop aesthetics, Waystation remixes the eclectic melodies of their ancestors with the rhythm of the city they live in, Oakland, California. In celebration of the release of their debut album rememory, a circle of songs activating immigration justice, Waystation plays music to move to.
