World-renowned Brave Old World, the super group of the Klezmer revival, combines the soulfulness of Yiddish tradition, the finesse of classical music and the vitality of jazz. Virtuoso musicians Michael Alpert, Alan Bern, Kurt Bjorling and Stuart Brotman join together to bring us a uniquely constructed theatrical evening exploring the beautiful and haunting melodies of the Lodz Ghetto.

It is music of hope, redemption and the power of the human spirit. A rare opportunity for soul-soaring, spirit lifting Yiddishkeit.

This concert grabbed its audience and wouldn't let go for a long time. The American quartet provoked storms of applause and blew away their audience in the sold-out City Hall. -Fürth News
