  • KlezKanada hosts the multi-award winning Other Europeans Project. Featuring acclaimed musicians from seven countries, this international ensemble explores the relationship, both historical and contemporary, between Jewish and Roma music.
  • The beloved Yiddish folksong duo Efim Chorney and Susan Ghergus returns to KlezKanada.
  • Our featured lecture program this year explores the rich culture and history of Jews in Canada.
  • KlezKanada is delighted to continue a major educational collaboration with the National Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, MA. The Discovery Project mobilizes young people to seek out and document the kinds of Jewish cultural treasures about which they are most passionate.

Our unique youth programs continue to attract individuals from all over the world. We are happy to announce that The KlezKanada Youth Scholarship Program, The David Stein Memorial Filmmaking Scholarships and The KlezKanada Fellowship Program all continue this year.
