Klezmer Jam, Brookline, MA, Jul 6

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

Cantors' 3rd Rozhinke Retreat, Catskills, NY, Aug 21-24

the Rozhinke Retreat
Reclaiming the Cantorial Art for the 21st Century
AUGUST 21-24, 2005

Kutshers Country Club, New York

Now in its third year, the "Rozhinke Retreat" is an effort to preserve and continue the great Cantorial art tradition of yesteryear. At the turn of the Millenium, we have seen many Jewish cultural revivals: Yiddish, Klezmer... and Hazzanut is due a revival of its own. This retreat has its roots in the great Cantorial stylings of such renowned Hazzanim as Yossele Rosenblatt, David Kousevitsky, Zavel Kwartin and many others—with an emphasis not on historical examination, but rather living reproduction of an art form which is so intrinsically Jewish, and so passionate, so filled with pathos and sweetness, that it can only be described as "Rozhinke"—the sweet sound of raisins and almonds.

  • Workshops with "hands-on" singing

Klezmer Jam, Brookline, MA, Feb 12

We had to change the jam to Sunday Feb 12 since we figured many people would want to watch the Super Bowl, even though the Patriots are not playing. You may remember that last year, the Invisible I-95 Foxboro Shetl Marching Band provided a stirring rendition of the Bobover Wedding March during the half-time show. Numerous sportscasters noted the inspirational impact this had on the Patriots.

This year's Super Bowl mysteriously does not include the Patriots (instead it is the Shtolers vs. the Yamfalks), but it does feature the Rolling Stones, and it is rumored that the Detroit Auto-Klez Ensemble will open for the Stones.

At any rate, come play music 7-9 pm on Sunday Feb. 12, 2006 at the Workmen's Circle, at 1762 Beacon Street in Brookline, about 5 blocks west of Washington Square, which is about 12 blocks west of Coolidge Corner, right on the Green Line Beacon Street route.

Workmen's Circle Klezmer Jam, Brookline, MA, 8 January 2012

For the new year, our January klezmer jam is Sunday January 8, not January 1, since we figure people may still be celebrating.

We play 7-9 pm at the Workmen's Circle 1762 Beacon St. Brookline. Pianists
should bring keyboards. Music is available for purchase.

February 12, 2012

Workmen's Circle Klezmer Jam, Brookline, MA, 12 Feb 2012

Well, it happens, the Patriots get to the Super Bowl and then the klezmorim get invited to participate. Rumor has it that Loren Sklamberg will sing the National Anthem and that the Yeshiva University Marching Band will perform at halftime. Even if that doesn't really happen, the Hub-Klez will be likely glued to their TVs.

So, the February jam will be Feb 12 Sunday 7-9 pm at the Workmen's Circle.
1762 Beacon St. Brookline.

Pianists should bring keyboards. Music is available for purchase.

Featuring a special performance by the Goldenshteyn Kompanye—a new ensemble led by clarinetist Naum Goldenshteyn (German's grand-nephew), who recently relocated to New York from Israel. Also performing are Dan Blacksberg (trombone), Christina Crowder (accordion), Aaron Alexander (percussion), Brian Glassman (bass) and Pete Rushefsky (tsimbl/cimbalom)
