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.

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.

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.

From Both Ends of the Earth, Toronto, CAN, Oct 9

From Both Ends of the Earth Live in Concert
Thursday, October 9-8:30pm at Hugh's Room

Formed by a group of music "all-stars" with an interest in interpreting traditional Yiddish music in a modern light, From Both Ends of the Earth transforms infinitely rich traditional music into music for today - thrilling, rhythmic, vibrant and timeless.

This collaborative project combines the rich and varied musical backgrounds of all these musicians: jazz, folk, R&B and Klezmer. The group's goal is to find personal expression through the music of their forebears, bringing all they know as musicians to this traditional music, to re-discover the spirit of the music and to create, not re-create.

"From Both Ends of the Earth is nothing less than a startling example of what happens when good musicians have fun with serious ideas" - Bartley Kives, Winnipeg Free Press

From Both Ends of the Earth are ARC Music Recording Artists. This concert is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts

One of the most creative and innovative music groups in Poland, The Cracow Klezmer Band, founded in 1997 by arranger and accordionist Jaroslaw Bester, will perform original compositions and improvisations based upon particular elements of klezmer tradition. In a recent concert review, The Chicago Tribune proclaimed, "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. Every composition whether exploring ebullient, age-old dance forms or investigating ancient cantorial melody painted an alluring portrait of Eastern European life and culture." 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.

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.

"With his puckish grin, pert red bow-tie and ever-perky whiskers, the Cat in the Hat is once again on the prowl, ready to rescue children from the doldrums of drizzly afternoons. Thanks to Berger's translation, Di Kats der Payats makes his entre into perfectly rhymed Yiddish and is likely to inspire warm, fuzzy feelings for the impish cat and perhaps for Yiddish itself." - Forward, September 5, 2003.

A Glezele Tey will be presented on Saturday, November 8 at 7:00 p.m., at The Jewish Community Center in Manhattan (334 Amsterdam Avenue at West 76th Street).

Lubet, Brin-Ingber, Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN, Dec 3

Alex Lubet writes to the Jewish-music list:

If you're anywhere near the Twin Cities, you may want to check out my
next gig 12/3, 730 pm, at Beth Jacob Synagogue in Mendota Heights, a
performance with my long-time collaborator, dancer/choreographer Judith
Brin-Ingber. I'll be doing my Ani Maamin and Maoz Tzur for guitar and
Shabbat Ha-Malkah for bass. Together, J and I will perform Hannelore
and our newest collaboration, Footnotes. Judith will perform Bari
Simone and Sarah, the latter featuring vocalist Amy (Yes, she's Jewish!)
Olson.

Most of the program is a tribute to Jewish women, a project-in-progress
that will eventually include exclusively original repertoire devoted to
our moms, sisters, partners, and female friends. Proud to say that the
dude of the duo came up with the idea (while watching a Seinfeld rerun
and getting tired of the way Jews are depicted in American pop culture
exclusively as something less than we are, a position I think hurts
women even more than men).

Judas Maccabeus, St. Louis, MO, Dec 20

For most of its 33 years of existence the St. Louis Circle of Jewish Music has sponsored an annual Chanukah choral festival. This year we begin a new tradition in collaboration with the suburban University City Symphony Orchestra - a "Judas Maccabeus" sing-along. Taking place (this year) at United Hebrew Congregation on December 20th, the combined choirs of most of the city's Jewish congregations will collaborate with the Orchestra, directed by Dr. Leon Burke, III, with solos sung by members of the Circle. Audience members may purchase a score for $18 which serves as a ticket for this and all future years, and then may sing along with the on-bima choir.

In researching the program notes I've become further surprised at the story of Handel's writing such a Jewish oratorio. "Messiah" notwithstanding, the vast majority of Handel's oratorios are on subjects from Tanach - "Old Testament" to him - "Deborah," "Israel in Egypt," "Joseph and His Brethren," etc. And "Judas Maccabeus" goes even one step further by NOT being of O.T. provenance, and hence lacking even that relevance for Christians. Apparently there was a political metaphor - a recently suppressed revolution. But I prefer the apocryphal story that Handel was advised to compose for royalty and the aristocracy, but wanted to see seats filled in the theater, and so wrote for the Jews.

Wholesale Klezmer Band
Once again, we return to Caffé Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY for the second night of Chanukah.

Subtitles will be provided for audience members not fluent in Yiddish.

Caffé Lena is at 47 Phila Street, Saratoga Springs, NY
Concert time is 6 PM

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 Nutcracker, Washington, DC, Dec 21

Critically acclaimed Shirim Klezmer Orchestra will give two performances of The Klezmer Nutcracker in the Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater at the District of Columbia Jewish Community Center on Sunday, December 21. The first performance will be a 45-minute acoustic kids' show at 12:00pm. The second performance will be a full-length show (approx. 90 minutes) at 3:00pm. Boston-based Shirim Klezmer Orchestra takes familiar musical material for a wild ride, playing melodies taken from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker in the rollicking style of Klezmer music. Billboard Magazine called The Klezmer Nutcracker "utterly natural and totally compelling. Shirim's genre-conception is a delight and its playing a joy." The Klezmer Nutcracker is a musical performance only. There is no dancing or dramatization of the original Nutcracker story. For tickets and parking information, call 202-777-3254 or email rachels@dcjcc.org. Tickets for the noon childrens show are $15 for adults and $12 for children. Tickets for the 3pm full-length show are $25 for DCJCC members and $30 for non-members.

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.

About 10 years ago I was drafted as music director for a

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.

Matisyahu, NYC, Mar 6

Some would say Purim is a Jewish holiday about a queen in Persia who saved the Jews of her kingdom from a violently egotistical prime minister. Others would say Purim is a holiday about the masks people wear and how to get behind them. We say, its one of our favorite holidays well worth celebrating in the traditional ways

With music, dancing, and drinking.

Join JDub, Matisyahu, and Hazon for a Purim night on the lower east side. In the spirit of turning things on their head, we've got an unbelievable bill of things Jewish and Not-So with Hasidic Reggae Superstar Matisyahu, hip hop band Automato and Londonian-Bostonian MC Kabir.

Cantor Edward R. Fogel Memorial Concert, St. Louis, MO, Mar 28

The St. Louis Circle of Jewish Music will present its annual Cantor Edward R. Fogel Memorial Concert this coming Sunday afternoon, March 28th at 4:00 pm at B'nai El Congregation, 11411 North Outer Forty Drive in suburban St. Louis. Entitled "A Night at the Opera," it will contain solos and ensemble pieces from opera, operetta and even the movie of the same name, performed by the cantors, soloists, keyboard players and other musicians from most of the city's Reform and Conservative congregations.

Ed Fogel (zl) was hazzan of Congregation Shaare Emeth in St. Louis for many years. Born in Uzbekistan, he grew up in Toronto, and as a teenager hitch-hiked to New York to attend Hebrew Union College. He was hired by Congregation Shaare Emeth after graduation and ordination, and later earned a master's degree from St. Louis Conservatory of Music. He was a founding member of the St. Louis Circle of Jewish Music, and a past president of both the Circle and the American Conference of Cantors. In his long career he proved a versatile cantor, accompanying himself on the guitar, known as a comedian and as a teacher, he concertized and recorded extensively. He survived cancer in 1998, but passed away in 2002. Soon afterward the St. Louis Circle of Jewish Music voted to dedicate its annual spring concert to his memory.

Glenn Dickson, W. Medford, MA, Apr 3

I am doing another of my Clarinetrics performances, this time in a
double-bill with the very excellent Oen Kennedy. It will be at the
Congregational Church of West Medford, Saturday, April 3, at 8:00pm. The
church is located at 400 High St., West Medford and admission is by
donation. Call me at 781-648-4282 for information. The Labyrinth will be
open for walking or you can just listen to the music which will be
meditative but an unusual sort of meditative. Oen will not be doing his
regular singer-songwriter show but a set of meditative music on piano,
tongue drum, bells, maybe some singing and guitar. Who knows what the muse
will bring? I will be playing my clarinet with electronics, ala Robert
Fripp. Hopefully Oen and I will also play together. It will be a very
unique evening. Please come.
I will print some background info below in case you are interested in more.
Peace,

Songs by St. Petersburg Society, Kfar Saba, Israel

You are invited to "Roots", a concert of songs written by composers of the
St. Petersburg Society, for voice, violin or viola and piano. The concert
is Sunday, April 4, at 18:00, at the Migdalei Hayam Hatichon
(Mediterranean Towers), Sireni 58, Kfar Saba.

The Saint Petersburg Society was a group of Jewish musicians who studied
at the St. Petersburg Moscow conservatories at the end of the 19th
century. These composers rediscovered their Jewish musical roots,
documented folk music from the Shtetl, and wrote arrangements and original
art songs in Yiddish. Most of these composers - the most notable of them
Joel Engel - migrated later to the US and Palestine, where they laid the
foundation for modern Israeli folk music.

The concert includes songs by Leo Low, Janot Roskin, A. Shitomirsky, and
Israel Brandmann. We will also perform songs by Chopin and Rachmaninoff.

Admission is free.

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.

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!
