"Great Day on Eldridge Street," NYC, Oct 12, 2007

The Eldridge Street Project will assemble more than 75 of the world’s most influential klezmer musicians for “A Great Day on Eldridge Street,” an unprecedented, ten-day series of concerts, lectures and educational events that will kick-off on October 12 with a march through the streets of the Lower East Side and an historic photo shoot on the steps of the National Historic Landmark Eldridge Street Synagogue. The photo is inspired by “A Great Day in Harlem,” the iconic 1958 photograph of renowned jazz musicians, including Thelonius Monk, Dizzie Gillespie and Count Basie.

Friday, October 12: Procession 11:30am from the Eldridge St. Synagogue to Seward Park featuring the musicians as they march down the streets of the Lower East Side. Photographer Leo Sorel will then take a portrait of the group at 9am.
