Yiddish Sing-Along w/Jillian Tallmer, Oct 21, 2007

Yiddish Sing-Along: Lullabies, Wake-up Calls, and Songs in the Night
Jillian Tallmer and accompanist

Shlof Mayn Kind ... Vakht Oyf! ... Shtil, Di Nakht

Yiddish abounds in dark songs, edgy lullabies, and lyrical calls to action. Jillian will introduce a dozen familiar and less well-known songs, providing transliterated songsheets. To enter the world of Yiddish songs -- ironic, down-to-earth, poignant -- is to feel their irresistible spirit. Whether you're new to this music or already hooked, you will come away inspired. No previous familiarity is required to enjoy this sing-along experience!

Sunday, October 21, 1 - 3 pm
