Thirteen of the world's most influential klezmer musicians gather for a concert and educational program inspired by the iconic 1958 photograph of jazz musicians "A Great Day in Harlem."

Conceived of and led by klezmer virtuoso Yale Strom, this gathering of musicians will highlight klezmer music, the traditional wedding and folk music played by Eastern European Jews. Klezmer lost popularity in the Unitd States after the 1950s as Jews looked to American musical sources. It began experiencing a revival in the 1970s as young musicians interested in their roots began to reclaim this tradition and incorporate American jazz and rock influences.

Join the Eldridge Street Project on its Great Day Tour with "A Great Day on Eldridge Street" in the beautful setting of the 1891 Fredonia Opera House.

Box Office Hours: Tu – F, 1 – 5 p.m.; Sat, 2 – 5 p.m.
