Richard Lenatsky at the Tonic, NYC, Jun 15

Treat your father ( or yourself) to a trip down memory lane this Father's Day, June 15, at the Klezmer Brunch at Tonic. Philadelphia area tenor, Richard Lenatsky, will perform oft-neglected folk and art songs made popular by such past luminaries of the Jewish music scene as Seymour Rechtzeit, Ben Bonus, Sidor Belarsky, and Jan Peerce. Let's keep the songs and the memory of the artists who performed them alive.

Richard will be accompanied on piano by well-known musician and Yiddish teacher (Uof Penn), Alexander (Sender) Botwinik. Show times are 1:30 and 3pm, $10 per show or $15 for both.

Who is Richard Lenatsky? Residing in West Chester, PA, I've been performing Yiddish art songs in the Phila. area and Amherst, MA, for about 10 years.

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.

For further information, visit the site website, www.klezkanada.com

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.

Di Naye Kapelye headline Helsinki Klez Fest, Oct 26

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 Europe's 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.

Sun 26 October 2003 at 7 p.m.
Di Naye Kapelye and Yankl Falk (Hungary)

Di Naye Kapelye, "The New Band" plays energetic klezmer music without forgetting traditions. Yankl Falk (vocals, clarinet) tours together with Di Naye Kapelye.

The concerts will be performed at the Savoy Theatre (Kasarmikatu 46-48). In addition to concerts the program of Helsinki Klezmer Festival will include evening clubs that are held at Kunsthalle Helsinki (Nervanderinkatu 3) right after the music performances.

Freilach mit Kneidlach will be the house band in the evening clubs.

Warschauer/Straus, NYC, Oct 30

The monthly Kavehoyz sponsored by the Congress for Jewish Culture, the League for Yiddish, and Yugntruf - Youth for Yiddish, is proud to present an evening of Yiddish song and music with

Deborah Strauss and Jeff Warschauer, aka:
the Strauss/Warschauer Duo
Thursday, Oct. 30, 2003 7:00 PM
at the Congress for Jewish Culture
25 E. 21 street in Manhattan
admission $5, includes kosher pastry and coffee.

The Strauss/Warschauer Duo brings together two internationally renowned musicians who are deeply committed to klezmer music and Yiddish song. Their performances are an integrated and intimate blend of songs, translations and instrumental music - grounded in tradition, yet thoroughly contemporary. They draw from klezmer, Yiddish, Hasidic and liturgical music and culture, adding their own original compositions and song settings. As they sing and play in shifting combinations of violin, guitar, mandolin and accordion, they create a dynamic atmosphere with an exceptional range of feeling - from delicate and refined to exuberant and foot-stomping.

For more information, please contact the Congress for Jewish Culture at (212) 505-8040.

Klezmerica will be celebrating the move by performing at the new Dakota this Thursday evening, November 6, from 8:30 PM until 12:30. There will be a $10 cover.

The Dakota is one of America's foremost jazz venues and one of the Twin Cities' finest restaurants. Virtually every major jazz musician has performed there. Roy Hargrove called it "the most comfortable jazz club in the world for musicians and audiences."

As it happens, the national Reform Jewish movement will be holding its Biennial Convention just a few blocks away, at the Minneapolis Convention Center Wednesday, November 5 through Sunday morning, November 9. Thousands from across the U.S. and beyond will be attending. Klezmerica has been selected to open the convention with a brief "Welcome to Minnesota" performance Wednesday night, November 5, in the Convention Center.

The Workmen's Circle Yiddish Lecture Series presents
A READING OF YIDDISH POETRY IN ENGLISH AND YIDDISH
Read by Richard Fein, poet, translator, and Professor Emeritus at SUNY,
New

Featuring the work of Anna Margolin, Yankev Glatshteyn, and Avrom
Suztkever

Date: Sunday, November 23
Time: 2:00 pm
Location: The Workmen's Circle, 1762 Beacon Street, Brookline
Admission: Free

Fiery, fearless, and stunningly modern, Yiddish poetry exploded onto
the
literary scene in the late nineteenth century and flourished throughout
the first half of the last century. In America, Europe, and later
Israel, Yiddish poets captured in luminous, and oftentimes bold and
experimental verse, the complex personal and communal struggles of life
in a rapidly changing world. Masters of language, they transformed
Yiddish into a powerful medium of poetic expression.
This program is funded, in part, by the Albert E. Marks Charitable
Trust
and the J.T. Zuckerman Fund of the Workmen's Circle.

In the Nazi-mandated ghettos during World War II, audiences gathered in makeshift clubs and theaters to hear newly-created songs, rooted in Jewish folk song, European cabaret, American jazz and Argentine tango. Jewish performers tuned these cosmopolitan songs in a local key: satirical and elegiac, political and personal, angry and heartsick, creating something scarcely conceivable: art at the edge of the abyss.

"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.

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.

World Premiere: Di Fusgeyers, Los Angeles, CA, Dec 4

In Collaboration with the Consulate General of Romania – Los Angeles
Present The World Premiere
“Di Fusgeyers”
Featuring Music Composed by
Yale Strom
Inspired by Stuart Tower’s popular historical novel “The Wayfarers,” this
string quartet is a musical tribute to the trek of thousands of young Romanian
Jews to Bremerhaven and other Atlantic seaports between 1890 and 1914 to
escape the intolerable political, social and economic anti-Semitism of their
native land in order to reach the Atlantic seaports for departure for a new life
in the United States. The Center for Jewish Culture and Creativity with
which Strom is affiliated, commissioned the creation of the composition as part
of its ongoing effort to broaden the horizon of Jewish culture. Its world
premiere will be:

Alicia's Klezmer Party brings the joyful sounds of traditional Ashkenazic Jewish dance music to young ears and feet. World-renowned klezmer fiddler Alicia Svigals, accordionist Art Bailey, and Yiddish singer Magda Fishman raise the roof with hot klezmer tunes and get kids and adults clapping and stamping along. Children learn Yiddish words and shtetl-flavored melodies to sing along and bring home to their own holiday celebrations. Alicia's Klezmer Party brings to life the ecstatic and poignant sounds that must have emanated from Chagall's original fiddlers, a magical journey for kids and parents of all backgrounds.
