The String Project, NYC, Sep 13

New York Jewish Music and Heritage Festival, 2004
Education Alliance presents
The String Project: Svigals, Strom & Schwartz
Mazer Theatre
197 E. Broadway (at Jefferson)
8pm, $15

"THE STRING PROJECT: Svigals, Strom & Schwartz" celebrates the essence of "the Jewish instrument" - the violin. In celebration of the 350th anniversary of Jewish life in America, four of the most acclaimed contemporary proponents of klezmer music - Alicia Svigals (violin, sekund), Yale Strom (violin, sekund), Elizabeth Schwartz (vocals & hand percussion) and Sprocket J. Royer (contrabass), present a unique exploration of the spiritual essence of "The Fiddler on the Roof". Traditional hasidic nigunim and traditional and original Yiddish songs, combined with true storytelling from Strom's field research in Eastern Europe, create an evening of beautiful and profound music and mayses, presented by masters.
