Experience the energetic and emotional music from the old country (19th century Eastern Europe) to the new world (20th century U.S.). With a classical touch, the Millie and the Mentshn ensemble alter the standard klezmer music into 'chamber klezmer' as they mix Yiddish Theater, folk, and swing genres. The music and stories reflect Jewish life prior, during, and after the Holocaust, capturing the struggles, the optimism, the strength, the love, the traditions, and the survival of a people. The program of original arrangements by the ensemble will feature songs that were written in the ghettos and Concentration Camps. The concert is sponsored by NWCHGEE, Hillel of WWU, Lutheran Campus Ministry, and with generous support from WWU Diversity Fund.
