Yiddish Summer Weimar 2013, July 20 - Aug 11

Catching up still from the period when I was laid up (which means that you want to apply to this extraordinary program now, from Alan Bern:

It's my pleasure to let you know that the Yiddish Summer Weimar 2013 website is online and registration is now open: www.yiddishsummer.eu. This year's topic is New Yiddish Music, with Advanced and Intermediate workshops in Song, Dance and Instrumental music, as well as beginning through advanced Yiddish classes. For the first time in 2013, we're presenting a "festival-within-the-festival"—a week of two concerts each night followed by a Gala Dance Ball and the first ever Yiddish Summer Pool Party—yes you read that right! Workshop faculty includes Efim Chorny, Dan Kahn, Frank London, the Michael Winograd Trio, Sasha Lurje, Ilya Schneyveys, Steven Weintraub, Zev Feldman, Andreas Schmitges and more. Concerts include the Zmiros Trio, Dan Kahn & The Painted Bird, Forshpil, Semer Label Reloaded, Voices of Ashkenaz, AlpenKlezmer, Milena Kartowski, Schikker wi Lot, and more. Running from July 21 - August 11, Yiddish Summer 2013 is going to be incredible, and I hope you can join us for one or more weeks!

Warmest greetings to all from Alan Bern, Director, Yiddish Summer Weimar
