Lost and Found: Musical Treasures of the Jewish Ukraine

On Sunday, October 7, Alicia Svigals, the world's leading klezmer fiddler and founder of the Grammy-winning ensemble The Klezmatics, presents lost musical treasures of the Jewish Ukraine. Drawing on the fieldwork of Moshe Beregovsky, a Soviet-Jewish ethnomusicologist, Svigals brings to life, through music and conversation, tunes recorded on wax cylinders before World War II. This incredible collection disappeared when Beregovsky was exiled to Siberia but was recently rediscovered in a dusty archive. Come help resurrect this beautiful old culture—singing and dancing welcome!
