With Jillian Tallmer and accompanist, returning by popular demand. Whether you are new to Yiddish music or already hooked, you will come away from these sing-alongs inspired. Jillian will introduce a dozen new songs each afternoon, using transliterated songsheets. Participants may bring in and suggest favorite songs to share.

Jillian Tallmer grew up in Manhattan, where she once played a street urchin in the Metropolitan Opera's "La Boheme." Introduced to the San Francisco Jewish Folk Chorus twenty years ago, she immediately fell in love with the world of Yiddish. For her solo performances and Yiddish sing-alongs all over the Bay Area, Jillian received the Yiddish Music Award of the Workmen's Circle in 2001. She conducts her own women's chorus, the Loose Canons, in performances of intriguing songs from around the world.
