The play incorporates events pre and post immigration and the transformation of these lives throughout those times. The production reflects a series of snapshots and intertwines dialogues between the past and the present.

Lost&Found was founded by Anna Zicer. Sponsored by CWW (a project of COJECO- supported by the UJA-Federation of NY) and Genesis Philanthropy Group. With the generous collaboration of Bryna Wasserman, of the National Yiddish

L'entrepôt - Musique
7/9, rue Francis de Pressenssé,
75014 Paris

Cette fois-ci les festivités commencent avec les MENTSH, un duo fidèle à la tradition de voyage et de fête, qui fait revivre cette musique de l’âme et la réinterprète avec fougue, énergie, malice et liberté. Le public est transporté dans un univers inversé et farfelu. Les émotions se mélangent entre euphorie et recueillement.

En deuxième partie de soirée, l'Entrepôt accueille FINZI MOSAIQUE ENSEMBLE, une nouvelle formation issue de la scène tsigano-orientale parisienne, qui interprète des musiques issues des balkans. Un spectacle ou se mêle danse, chant et musique. L’orchestre, formé par des musiciens d’origines cosmopolites (France, Roumanie, Turquie, Espagne), donne une nouvelle vie à ces répertoires traditionnels.

Eve's Women, NYC, Jul 12

I just wanted to let you know about the U.S. debut of "Eve's Women" from Israel who play both traditional klezmer as well as an "Israeli style" of klezmer with strong Middle Eastern, Latin and African influences.

They will be playing along with Chava Alberstein in Brooklyn's Prospect Park in the Celebrate Brooklyn! summer concert series on Saturday, July 12th at 7:30 pm. Here is an article that just came out about them in Israel21c.

These are four top female talents from Israel, coming from a variety of musical backgrounds - from symphony orchestras to the country's hottest rock bands. Consequently, they bring a truly unique and fresh blend of klezmer, jazz, rock and world music sounds.

Klezfest, St. Petersburg, Russia, July 12-16

An international seminar on the traditional music of Eastern European Jewry, to be held July 12-16, 2003 in St. Petersburg, Russia. KlezFest in St. Petersburg," now in its seventh year, is the oldest Klezmer seminar in Russia.

Hankus Netsky in Jam, Boston, MA, Jul 24

So, as I announced last week, this year's NEC klezmer institute was cancelled.

But.....since there was a fairly well-publicized concert scheduled for
Thursday night, July 24 at 7:30 PM in room G14 in the St. Botolph Building (241 St.
Botolph St., Boston)

And since people might show up for that concert anyway...

I've decided to host a klezmer and Yiddish jam session that night, which will
at least feature myself and Michael Winograd.

And if there's an audience, we can pretend it's a concert. A really good
concert.

One word of warning - If you want to get in, be sure to arrive before eight -
they lock the doors (street entrance) to the building at 8.

Also, I think they lock the parking lot entrance even earlier.

Also, it wouldn't hurt to maybe bring something to eat or drink
(non-alcoholic, but we can pretend).

Klezmer music workshop, Weimar, Germany, Aug 3-10

Bridges: Between Klezmer & New Jewish Music"

In response to the wishes of many participants in the Weimar workshops in 2000 and 2002, we've chosen a focus this year which is contemporary as well as historical. In addition to the musicians of Brave Old World, we're delighted to have Frank London and Sophie Solomon as teachers in 2003, both musicians internationally known for their innovative Jewish music projects (see biographies). The workshop is aimed at experienced players of klezmer or other Jewish music. In lectures, master classes and ensembles, we will investigate questions of style, repertoire and performance practise relating traditional klezmer music to contemporary Jewish musics. Particular attention will be paid to improvisation and innovations in rhythm, harmony, melody and form.

Klezmer Jam, Brookline, MA, Aug 3

Klezmer jam at the Workmen's Circle, 6-8 PM . We hope you will come and enjoy a great jam led by clarinetist Michael Winograd.

We have been playing mainly from printed music, which we will have available in C and B-flat. All levels of players are welcome.

The WC is at 1762 Beacon St in Brookline, about 5 blocks west of Washington Square, which is about 12 blocks west of Coolidge Corner. The Green Line Beacon Street route goes right to the WC (just tell the conductor, "Ich gay in Arbeter Ring," and they'll know where to let you off).

We recommend a contribution of $5-$10, but no one should be kept away on account of money.

8th Annual KlezKanada, Quebec, Canada, Aug 19-24

One of the best Klezmer/yiddish culture camps in North America is the annual "KlezKanada", held each years in the spectacular Laurentian mountains north of Montreal. Organized, in part, by the folks in Brave Old World, the program is always spectacular.

Events include lectures, a mini film festival, and of course, intensive workshops in singing, klezmer music, theatre, and dance. The "Kidz for Klez" program is also great. This is the best summer camp in the world (in fact, the event is hosted at a Jewish summer camp). Register early to get the best bunks.

Although most events start on the 20th, today is the day to arrive, get oriented, and get in some preliminary jamming.

School of Management Auditorium
595 Commonwealth Ave.

Violinist Alicia Svigals, who is considered by many to be the world's leading klezmer fiddler, was a founder of the renowned Jewish roots groups the Klezmatics, and of her current band, the all-female Mikveh. As a musician and composer, she has worked with Itzhak Perlman, the Kronos Quartet, playwrights Tony Kushner and Eve Ensler, Allen Ginsburg, Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, Hasidic superstar Avraham Fried, and singer/songwriter Debbie Friedman.

She has been at the forefront of the Klezmer revival, rediscovering and reinventing the sound of the Klezmer fiddle, the central instrument in klezmer music before the Holocaust. A musician and composer, Svigals is widely acclaimed for her virtuosic technique and lyricism.

Svigals will be joined by an old-world string band made up of Boston's finest klezmer musicians, including members of the Klezmer Conservatory Band and of Andy Statman's ensemble: Jim Guttman, bass; Miriam Rabson and Rohan Gregory, violins; Pete Rushefsky, tsimbl; and Larry Eagle, percussion.

This innovative ensemble from Cracow, Poland takes the traditions of klezmer music, with all its wild and festive roots, and turns it into thoughtful and virtuostic performance art. In an era in which many bands exaggerate and vulgarize, this group is headed in the other direction, creating original compositions and intricate inprovisations based on particular elements of klezmer. This will be their first time in Boston! "Of all the ensembles that have emerged in recent years to explore the meaning of klezmer in a new era, few have reached as high as the Cracow Klezmer Band, and fewer still have attained comparable results."- Chicago Tribune.

The Cracow Klezmer Band is: Jaroslaw Bester, accordion; Jaroslaw Tyrala, violin; Oleg Dyyak, accordion, clarinet and percussion; and Wojciech Front, double bass.

Casco Bay Tummelers, Bar Mills, ME, Oct 11

The Casco Bay Tummlers will be performing a concert of emotionally charged klezmer music, danceable folk melodies of Eastern Europe, Yiddish "favorites" and original tunes at The Saco River Grange Hall on Saturday, October 11th. Back by popular demand - this is their third annual appearance at the Saco Grange. For those who haven't been there, the Grange is a wonderful, friendly room with great acoustics, right on the Saco River and just a 20 minute drive from Portland.

Over the last year the Tummlers have been working with a new clarinetist, Steve Gruverman. Steve has an extensive background in international folk dance music. As a result, the Tummlers have been broadening their repertoire, learning music which is closely related to klezmer and comes from countries such as Macedonia and Bulgaria. They've also added some beautiful Ladino songs from the Jewish community of Salonika in Greece which feature Julie Goell on vocals. The concert will include original music by bandmembers Carl Dimow and Hayes Porterfield, lots of joyful klezmer standards and the classic Yiddish theater showstopper, "Roumainia, Roumainia," sung by the delightful Nancy 3. Hoffman.

The concert is at 7:30 pm, $10 for adults, $8 for children and seniors. Call the Grange at 929-6472 for reservations and directions, or get tickets at the door.

David Krakauer at Helsinki Klezmer Fest, Oct 25

Helsinki Klezmer Festival, the festival of traditional instrumental music of the Yiddish-speaking people is organized for the third time already in Finland. Savoy Theatre as its venue, the event aims to make klezmer music better known in general and to give people a possibility to get to know one of the Europes most interesting cultural traditions. Klezmer music has its roots in the medieval Europe, where the Jewish people of the Eastern Europe traveled from town to town in order to play in weddings and other events. By the end of the 18th century klezmer music had become a well-developed music style, gathering influences from the Jewish culture and from outside of it.

Nowadays klezmer music is played almost all around the world, but mostly in the United States and in Europe. Klezmer music is constantly evolving and mixing with other music styles such as jazz and pop music. In order for the style to survive it is still important that there are also bands trying to find out the origins of klezmer music and ways to maintain it as authentic as possible. The authenticity of the music will not bring back the culturally rich community that once lived in the Eastern Europe but will give the listeners a possibility to get a bit closer look at the life of the society that lived at that time.

We recommend a contribution of $5-$10, but no one should be kept away on account of money.

If you have your own list of people who might like to attend, please forward this to them.

The December jam will probably be held on Dec 14, since the Klezmatics are playing on Dec. 7 - keep tuned for definite date.

Adrianne Greenbaum writes:

On December 21 I will be performing with Pete Rushevsky and Marty Confurius (Cookie MAY join in on a set if she can briefly tear herself away from a family fete...) at Tonic. We'll be performing most of the Fleyt album but also additional Gulerman and Triplik/Beregovski tunes, a couple of which will hopefully performed on my "new" simple-system J. Zimmermann flute, c. 1899. It's a great sounding gem of an instrument if I can remember most of the fingerings... I'm gettin' there.... Anyway, I'd love to see many of you and maybe it'll be a nice warm afternoon like it's supposed to be this Sunday :-) Each set will be different so come to both and shmooze in between.

Klezmer Jam, Brookline, MA, Jan 4

Dear klezmorim

We are back from KlezKamp, bursting with energy from the week of wonderful Jewish music and culture. We are sure this energy will rub off on everyone who attends our January Jam.

The January jam at the Workmen's Circle is Sunday January 4, 6-8 PM. Our regular jam leader, Michael Winograd, played at the opening night staff concert and at the closing night's festivities with Frank London's Klezmer Brass Allstars. Michael is out of town January 4, but we'll have a great jam led by Jim Guttmann, bassist with the Klezmer Conservatory Band, and just returned from teaching at KlezKamp.

We have been playing mainly from printed music, which we will have available in C and B-flat. All levels of players are welcome.

The WC is at 1762 Beacon Street in Brookline, about 5 blocks west of Washington Square, which is about 12 blocks west of Coolidge Corner. The Green Line Beacon Street route goes right to the WC (just tell the conductor, "Ich gay in Arbeter Ring," and they'll know where to let you off).

We recommend a contribution of $5-$10, but no one should be kept away on account of money.

alicia svigalsBefore the big klezmer bands of New York arose with their brass and clarinets, there were the archetypical Jewish orchestras of the old world, led by the fiddle and borne aloft by the otherworldly sounds of the harp-like "tsimbl", or Jewish hammered dulcimer. This evening, the world's leading klezmer fiddler, the renowned Alicia Svigals, co-founder of the legendary Klezmatics, presents a program of these ancient and ecstatic Jewish melodies, accompanied by "tsimbler" Pete Rushefsky, one of the few musicians in the world to have mastered this traditional instrument. Join these two great figures in the revival and revitalization of "Old World" Jewish music a week before Purim for a musical communion with beloved ghosts from this Eastern European past.

"Groyse" Klezmer Concert, Montreal, Canada, Feb 29

The GROYSER KONCERT is coming to Montreal.

A popular feature of the KlezKanada Festival of Yiddish/Jewish Music and Culture held annually in the Laurentians, the GROYSER KONCERT is relocating to Montréal and the first concert will take place Sunday, February 29 at the Monument National Theatre, 1182 Boulevard Saint-Laurent.

Three internationally acclaimed groups will headline the program: New York-based Brave Old World, which has stood at the forefront of the Klezmer revival around-the-world for over two decades; Beyond the Pale, a Toronto group that has been winning raves across North America for its contemporary approach to traditional Klezmer music; and Montreal’s Shtreiml, just back from a successful European tour that won raves for its Klezmer, gypsy and jazz music.

Broadway singing star Joanne Borts and Yaela Hertz, violinist and concertmaster emerita of the McGill Chamber Orchestra, will also be featured. Michael Wex, the celebrated author, raconteur and itinerant teacher of Yiddish, will be the MC.

Jointly sponsored by KlezKanada, the YM-YWHA Montreal Jewish Community Centres and the Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts, the GROYSER KONCERT signals the beginning of a collaborative relationship between the organizations, with the intent of creating a permanent base for Klezmer music in Montréal.

Proceeds help support KlezKanada’s unique youth scholarship fund and the cultural programming of Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts.

Patron tickets at $250 and Supporter tickets at $100 are available with partial tax receipts. General admission (Balcony seats) is $36 and tickets are on sale at the Saidye Bronfman Centre Box Office, 5170 Côte Ste-Catherine Road, or by telephone at (514) 739-7944.

Silent Film showing w/Klezmer Score, Columbia, MO, May 7

Klezmer and Yiddish swing orchestra The People's Republic of Klezmerica
May 7, 2004, at the Missouri Theatre in Columbia, MO:
Time: 8pm

$8 for adults, $6 for children under 12.
tel: (573)446-0608

will present their original score to "Pass the Gravy," enlivening our rediscovery of the agile and inspired silent comedian Max Davidson. Davidson was extremely popular in the late 1920s when he starred in a number of shorts at the Hal Roach Studios, playing the roles of Jewish tailors, pawnbrokers, and junk dealers. Nearly forgotten today, Davidson infused American slapstick with agile antics and a unique brand of Eastern European moxie. The original score, which combines early Yiddish swing, klezmer, vintage "photoplay" music, and popular melodies, may be the first Yiddish-themed work in the emerging trend of accompanying silent films.

Pharaoh's Daughter, Rashanim, NYC, May 23

Counting Sheaves: Def Midrash Jam!! The Jam will bring together poetry and music dedicated to the dearest, the funkiest, and the most obscure midrashim, as well as our poets' own erratic interpretive inventions a-la midrash. Some of the hippest Jewish musicians in New York, Pharaoh's Daughter (middle-eastern psychedelic rock) and Rashanim (experimental jazz-rock) will continue the theme of artistic interpretation through their beats, rhythms and solos. Nehedar, the radical all-chick roots-and-funk band, hailing from Stern College, will open the show. Bring your own midrashic inventions: the open mic section will go late into the night (sign up starts at 7 pm). Sunday May 23rd, 7 pm * 308 Bowery, b/n Houston and Bleecker * $10 cover The event will be held at the famed Bowery Poetry Café in Greenwich Village. Please see our website for a preview of the event's poetry, music, photos, bios, links, directions and more: www.mimaamakim.org This is going to rock!!

Disciples of Goldenshteyn, Seattle, WA, May 31

Still wanting more after this Sunday night's Northwest Folklife Balkan bash? Grab your latte, chase off that hangover and boogie the morning after to "Disciples of Goldenshteyn," a trio playing old-time Bessarabian Wedding Band music.

Andrew Ehrlich (violin), Milton From (clarinet) and Martin Morgenbesser (accordion) will wake you up with tunes we've learned from our beloved teacher and personal hero, clarinetist German Goldenshteyn. This lively and soulful traditional dance music blends Jewish, Moldovan, Roma, Romanian and Ukrainian influences into a heady Klezmer brew once performed throughout Bessarabia for weddings and communal celebrations.

"Disciples of Goldenshteyn" will perform at Northwest Folklife, Seattle Center, this Monday, Memorial Day, May 31st from 11:00 till 11:30 AM at the Exhibition Hall Lawn Stage.

To learn more about German Goldenshteyn and the music he plays go to Interview with a Bessarabian Klezmer, German Goldenstyn. German Goldenshteyn teaches every year at KlezKanada. Check it out! Learn from our master!

Set in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains on the lush 300+ acre campus of Albuquerque Academy, this weeklong workshop features Veretski Pass, including tsimbalist and accordianist Josh Horowitz, fiddler Cookie Segelstein, and Stu Brotman on bass. This year we are offering optional afternoon classes including 2 sessions of Yiddish dance, a lecture and slide show on 18th and 19th C. Yiddish life, and a film screening and discussion. You can also hike on our private wilderness tract and on the many acres of public land nearby. Or you may want to explore the cultural resources of the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area.

This class is open to anyone who can play simple tunes on their instrument. You do not have to read music or be familiar with Klezmer style. We encourage both solo players and existing ensembles to participate. Class will run daily from 9 AM until noon with optional afternoon programs as describged above. $210.

The week will conclude with a student concert, and a concert by Cookie, Josh and Stu on Friday evening.

This weeklong workshop could be a great start or end to a southwestern summer vacation or a vacation unto itself.

9th KlezKanada, Quebec, Canada, Aug 23-29

Musicians begin today

One of the best Klezmer/yiddish culture camps in North America is the annual "KlezKanada", held each years in the spectacular Laurentian mountains north of Montreal. Organized, in part, by the folks in Brave Old World, the program is always spectacular.

Events include lectures, a mini film festival, and of course, intensive workshops in singing, klezmer music, theatre, and dance. The "Kidz for Klez" program is also great. This is the best summer camp in the world (in fact, the event is hosted at a Jewish summer camp). Register early to get the best bunks.

Although most events start on Wednesday, the 25th, musicians should arrive this morning with the first workshops scheduled for this afternoon. Today is the day to arrive, get oriented, and get in some preliminary jamming.

Brave Old World, NYC, May 11-15

brave old worldStu Brotman writes about the "great lost" Brave Old World program, now being released on CD, and now appearing in NYC!

Brave Old World will be presented by the Folksbiene Theatre in New York this May 11-15. We¹ll be performing our program called "Song of the Lodz Ghetto," which has just been released as a beautiful new Winter and Winter cd called "Dus gezang fin Geto Lodzh."

From the Folksbiene's announcement on their website, folksbiene.org/!musical-events.html:

The New York premiere of the innovative klezmer group's moving, theatrical musical program blending Yiddish tradition, classical music, jazz, and rare Jewish street and cabaret songs from the Nazi ghetto of Lodz, Poland between 1940 and 1944. (At the Triad Theater, on West. 72nd Street, 9pm, $20.) The New York premiere of the innovative klezmer group's moving, theatrical musical program blending Yiddish tradition, classical music, jazz, and rare Jewish street and cabaret songs from the Nazi ghetto of Lodz, Poland between 1940 and 1944. (At the Triad Theater, on West. 72nd Street, 9pm, $20.)"

I¹m very proud of this show. It¹s essentially a through-composed tone poem, a one-act musical play, in suite form, in Yiddish and Polish, with English supertitles projected overhead. Long-lost songs of resistance from street-singers of the Lodz ghetto are contrasted with pre-war Polish and Yiddish songs; original klezmer laments and deep jazz improvisations, references to Beethoven, evoke powerful emotions.

The student body is truly international, coming from all over Europe, North America, and even Asia.
