Sounds of FleytMuzik, with Internationally known classical and klezmer flutist, Adrianne Greenbaum, will permeate the room with vintage wood flutes, fiddle, cimbalom (hammered dulcimer of eastern Europe) and string bass. A collage of tunes from Moldavia, Ukraine, and the former Soviet Union mixed with newly-composed pieces will supply the concert with energy and soul. Greenbaum, Professor of Flute at Mount Holyoke College, Principal Flutist of the New Haven Symphony and leader of locally known klezmer ensemble, The Klezical Tradition, has performed klezmer across the US in colleges and festivals, as a charter performer in Vienna's premier klezmer fest, and in Amsterdam's Jewish Music Festival. And now at the NYBC. Band-mate Pete Rushefsky, "Monster of the Cimbalom" with his fierce stick technique, will provide spectacular rhythmic drive. Jake Shulman-Ment, one of this country's newest star klezmer fiddlers will add his well-honed bow and flying fingers. And Brian Glassman, who has been heard around the world performing with some of the greatest stars of jazz and Jewish music, will provide the bass lines to tie it all together.
