All Star New York Yiddish Sing-along, New York, NY, 12 October, 2010

The next All Star New York Yiddish Sing-along will take place on Tuesday, October 12, at 7:30pm at Congregation Rodeph Sholom, 7 West 83rd Street.

This will be the third such event in recent years led by the inimitable artistic director of the National Yiddish Theater - Folksbiene Zalmen Mlotek. The large audiences that attended the earlier two Yiddish Sing-alongs found themselves in the warm embrace of a heymish community sharing songs that evoked memories of a vibrant Yiddish speaking world, and connections to its glorious culture. The high percentage of younger participants was yet another sign that Yiddish is very much alive and will be part of the New York experience for generations to come.

This year's line-up of singers includes some of our most popular performers of Jewish music - artists who travel the world, and perform in a wide range of musical genres: Cantor Bob Abelson, Phyllis Berk, Joanne Borts, Adrienne Cooper, Magda Fishman, Cantor Rebecca Garfein, Annette Ezekiel Kogan, Avram Mlotek, Avram Pengas, Daniella Rabbani, Basya Schechter, Di Shekhter Tekhter, Cantor Dan Singer, Zalmen Mlotek's Yiddish Singers, The Folksbiene Troupe, The Jewish People's Philharmonic Chorus/yidisher filharmonisher folks khor, under the musical direction of Binyumen Schaechter - and some special surprise performers

There will be a Klezmer band accompanying the concert - with some of our finest musicians, including Margot Leverett, Marty Confurius, Matt Temking and others.

Every song will be available in transliteration so that every audience member will be able to fully participate and fill the glorious sanctuary of Congregation Rodeph Sholem with the sounds of Mame-loshn. Our emcee will be that debonair Yiddishist from Avantura - Corey Breier.

The concert is presented by Golden Land Concerts & Connections, with support from the National Yiddish Theater - Folksbiene, The Workmen's Circle/ Arbeter-Ring, League for Yiddish/Afn Shvel, Yugntruf, Congregation Rodeph Sholom, Congress for Jewish Culture, Yiddish Artists & Friends/ Actors Club/Yiddish Theatrical Alliance.

VIP reserved seating, with a post concert wine reception sponsored by City Winery, will be $50 if purchased in advance, and $60 on the day of the concert.
