Under the Umbrella of Terezin – Music Against the Odds

Miriam Brickman Piano, Lloica Czackis, mezzo soprano, Rabbi Albert Friedlander and Evelyn Friedlander, Narrators, in conversation with Ronald Senator

That music and poetry of such stature was written and performed in concentration camps like Terezin is beyond comprehension. Rabbi Albert Friedlander, who wrote the Libretto, which uses liturgical texts and children’s poems from Terezin, and Evelyn Friedlander talk with Ronald Senator about Ronald’s Kaddish for Terezin, first performed in Canterbury Cathedral (1986). They play extracts from the CD of this performance. Miriam Brickman performs piano music by incarcerated composers, Krasa, Ullmann and Schulhoff. Lloica Czackis sings cabaret songs from the camp in the most fitting venue in the City which was bombed by the IRA and has opened its gates as a centre for reconciliation and peace.

Presented by the Jewish Music Institute, the Spiro Ark, the St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace and CCJ.

Ot Azoy! Yiddish Crash Course, London, UK, Aug 6-11

Ot Azoy! Yiddish Crash Course Sunday 6-Friday 11 August

KlezFest is preceded by Ot Azoy! (6-11 August). Ot Azoy' means 'This is the way' and it really is the way for beginners to advanced students to learn to read, write and speak Yiddish quickly and easily in only one week in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Includes intensive tuition and conversation sessions with expert tuition from Peysakh Fiszman of New York, Sonia Dratwa-Pinkusowitz of the Buber Institute in Brussels and Lily Kahn under the Direction of Helen (Khayele) Beer of University College London. Learn Yiddish also through song with exquisite Yiddish Singer Shura Lipovsky from Amsterdam and through Yiddish films selected and introduced by Barry Davis of London. For complete beginners to advanced students in four levels. Beginners will be taken through the Hebrew-Yiddish alphabet (much easier than it looks), will learn some every-day vocabulary and a generous helping of grammar, so that by the end of the week you will be able to string together your first sentences in Yiddish! Intermediate and advanced Yiddish speakers will be given more challenging texts and grammatical lessons and will get lots of opportunities to converse in this extraordinary language. Who says Yiddish is Kaput? This will be the 5th JMI Yiddish Crash course.

On the concert platform he has performed as Bass soloist with Yehudi Menuhin, Daniele Gatti, Pascal Tortelier, David Willcocks and Stanislaw Skrowaczewski. He is cantor on High Holy Days for Westminster Synagogue. His memoir, The Goldberg Variations, was shortlisted for the Wingate Prize for Jewish Literature and the National Sporting Club Award.

*Alexander Knapp* is one of the world's foremost authorities, performers and arrangers of Jewish Music. He has published and lectured throughout Europe and in Israel, the USA, Russia and China. He was until recently Joe Loss lecturer in Jewish Music at the School of Oriental and African Studies at London University, and has also held lectureships at Wolfson College, Cambridge, the Royal College of Music an Goldsmith's College.

East & West (Ost und west) (U) + live accompaniment by Lemez Lovas of Oi Va Voi and guest musicians

Cinema 1

Barbican, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS

£8.50/£6 conc/£4.50 under 15s from the Barbican ticket office: 0845 120 7527 or online

Part of the Barbican’s silent film / live music series, Lemez Lovas, formerly of Oi Va Voi, directs guest musicians Moshikop and Rohan Kriwaczek in an irreverent live performance of a score for East and West – especially prepared for the JCC – that played to sell-out audiences in 2005 and 2006.

In Sidney M. Goldin and Ivan Abramson’s silent movie (1923), streetwise New Yorker Mollie (Molly Picon) travels to her demure cousin’s wedding in a traditional Polish shtetl. Lovas, Moshikop and Kriwaczek’s cheeky new score takes us from traditional klezmer to contemporary electronica, from liturgical melancholy to party pop kitsch and from vaudeville to breakbeat. As love blossoms between East and West, and the musical narrative unfolds, traditional and modern worlds are brought into collision.

Check out a trailer for the gig here.

Workshop with Rona Kenan
Tuesday 8th July, 6pm to 8pm
(Followed by Jam until 9pm)

Singing-songwriting workshop with Israel's new female leading artist whose dark velvety voice, biting lyrics and striking presence have set the bar.

By the young age of 18, Rona Kenan was already heralded as a "discovery," with promising talent as a musician, singer and songwriter. Her first public appearance attracted much attention, when she performed two original songs for Eran Tzur's program and album, in memory of the poetess Yona Wollach. Since then, she has composed for and performed in numerous and varied projects.

In 2004, she released her long-anticipated debut album, "Breathing Down to Zero," produced by leading Israeli producer Izhar Ashdot, with 11 original tracks in both Hebrew and English. She has also written the music for a number of Israeli films and television series. In February 2007, Rona released her second album: "Through Foreign Eyes". The disk presents ten songs, all composed and written by her.

Yiddish Winterreise for Darfus, London, UK, 19 Oct 2008

A Yiddish Winterreise for Darfur, Sunday 19 October at The Church of Our Most Holy Redeemer, Exmouth Market, EC1

On Sunday, 19 October we will be giving what we consider to be our most important performance yet. A Yiddish Winterreise is a cycle of songs in Yiddish performed by Mark Glanville (Bass-Baritone) and Alexander Knapp (Piano), which aims to replicate the emotional journey of Schubert's original, but in a Holocaust context. From the outset it was conceived both as a way of building bridges and a means of lending support to the victims of modern genocides.

The concert will be given at the Church of our Most Holy Redeemer, Exmouth Market, London EC1, Sunday 19 October at 19.30. Minimum charge £10. We urge you to attend.

"exhilarating, full-flavoured stuff, often breath-takingly intricate but played with jubilation—the Bagel acquires the momentum of an express train"—The Herald

Rip-roaring, foot-stomping, traditional Jewish music fused with Balkan gypsy folk, jazz and Middle Eastern rhythms—all delivered with dazzling musicality and panache! Full of warmth and good humour, this highly danceable music is big on rhythm and alive with energy—little wonder their concerts are always so popular. Exhilarating both to hear and watch, catch this exciting klezmer/Balkan groove from some of Scotland's finest musicians.

"The Other Seder Songs", London, UK, 26 Mar 2009

The Other Seder Songs
Thursday 26th March, 7:30pm

Los Desterrados, Oi Va Voi and the Yiddish Twist Orchestra will rock out the JCC's Other Seder. For the third consecutive year, we present our unique take on the Seder, as each band performs a song inspired by the after-dinner songs as the launching point for their set.

Cualos son los uno
Six-piece Los Desterrados, who released their third album, Miradores at the end of 2008, bring their mix of ladino, flamenco, Moorish and Gypsy flavours to the Seder.

"Los Des take the Medieval music of the Sephardic Jews, with its strong Latin influences, and drag it effortlessly into the 21st Century with lashings of Spanish folk and Balkan Soul to deliver a series of rousing, melancholic songs that pulse with rhythm and feeling" (London Metro)

Adir Hu
London's superfly klezmer / punk / gypsy outfit Oi Va Voi give us a sneak preview of their forthcoming third album, Traveling the Face of the Globe.

"Kudos, culture, vision.Oi Va Voi. Remember the name"YTO Merlin
(Evening Standard)

Chad Gadya
The JCC's own creation, the fabulous Yiddish Twist Orchestra, will set the dance floor swinging with their hard-dancing, pulp fiction style 50s and 60s Yiddish surf twist!

Hosted by Judy Batalion and accompanied by the tunes of DJ Max Reinhardt and visuals by imagician Miki Shaw, The Other Seder Songs returns to the beautiful Wilton's Music Hall for a night of music and dance.

A rare performance in the UK: Eyal Maoz and Asaf Sirkis share a long history of collaboration. Beginning at
elementary school in their hometown of Rehovot, Israel, their friendship and musical association has continued through many years, and they have since become main stays of the creative music scenes of London (Sirkis) and New York (Maoz). A huge plethora of influences and experiences comes to creative fruition in their duo. Combining composition and improvisation, their intuitive rapport and mutual understanding guides the way through a musical conversation full of unexpected twists and turns and sudden bursts of colour and energy, yet never losing its emotional depth and logical coherence. The Maoz-Sirkis duet brings straight-up experimentation to the traditional concept of jazz, blending both composed and improvised music to create an interesting and inventive whole.

style, guitar-drums format." -Glenn Astarita , All About

Dear Friends,

As you may have noticed World Brunch Club took a little break recently as we searched for a new location for our culinary shenanigans.

We are very pleased to announce that we have now found the perfect home in the newly-converted cinema and cafe Sugarhouse Studios (sugarhousestudios.co.uk) in Stratford.

For our first event at Sugarhouse we will actually be making dinner - a Lebanese feast, followed by a screening of the film Caramel - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caramel_(film).

We have 50 spaces available at £15/person for 2 (vegetarian) courses and the film. There is also a bar at Sugarhouse, but drinks are not included.

The bar will be open from 6pm and we will be serving dinner at 7.30pm.

PLEASE BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT! Book your ticket at www.wegottickets.com/event/167209.

Looking forward to feeding you!

Lost amongst the snowy landscape, the Christmas lights and pine trees, will our Latke ever find where it belongs?
