Yale Strom & Fred Benedetti, Los Angeles, CA, Mar 20

Yale Strom Returns to Arbeter Ring for Purim!
Sunday, March 20 at 2 pm

Yale Strom & Fred Benedetti will present a klezmer Purim concert called "Muzik, Mayses un Di Gantse Megile"

Sunday, March 20 at 2 pm at the Workmen's Circle, 1525 S. Robertson Blvd., Los Angeles 90035. Tickets are $15 for the general public, $12 for Workmen's Circle or Sholem Community members, and $8 for children under 13. Take a buck off per ticket if your paid order (not just a reservation) is received in our office by Friday, March 18. For further info, please call 310.552.2007.

Internationally known klezmer artist and ethnographer Yale Strom will play violin and sing some tunes he has discovered over the many years of field research he has done in Eastern Europe among the Jews and Rom. His latest is book A Wandering Feast: A Journey Through the Jewish Culture of Eastern Europe, a travel memoir with music, stories, recipes, and photos about his first trip to the former East Bloc in search of klezmer in 1981. Yale will read a few stories from his book.

On his return, Yale formed his first klezmer band in 1981 called Zmiros with Fred Benedetti and Jeff Pekarek. Fred is an internationally renowned classical guitarist and is adept at playing many other styles of music including klezmer. Fred will play a few klezmer tunes arranged for classical guitar that Yale composed.

The Strom-Benedetti duo is always a hit at Workmen's Circle. Don't miss them this Purim!
