In its Spring 2009 concert, the now 15-member strong UVA Klezmer Ensemble under the direction of McIntire Department of Music’s Director of Music Performance, Joel Rubin will perform a new program of instrumental klezmer and hasidic music. The ensemble, made up of UVA undergrads and grad students, faculty and other members of the greater Charlottesville community, is dedicated to exploring klezmer and other Jewish musical traditions from the 18th century to the present. The concert will focus on repertoire from the hasidic and klezmer traditions of the mid-18th to early 20th century Eastern Europe, as well as on instrumental klezmer dance music from early 20th century New York and Philadelphia as well as mid-20th century New York.
