Come join enthusiastic young Klezmer musicians at Klezmer Palooza 2011, hosted by the Columbia Klezmer Band! The festival will take place starting Saturday night January 29th with some casual jamming, Yiddish dancing and gathering of Klezmer musicians, followed by a day of workshops from 10 am- 4 pm lead by world renowned Klezmer musicians in Columbia's Dodge Hall. Sunday January 30 will wrap up with a cabaret-style concert on Columbia's campus from 5-7 pm given by participating students and workshop leaders alike in a fun and intimate setting on campus.
Attending the workshops is free for students, however there will be a suggested donation fee of 15$ per student to help the Columbia Klezmer Band cover the costs of inviting workshop leaders and reserving the space for the festival. All participants must fund their own travel and meals throughout the weekend. Visiting students who don't have housing in New York City can ask ahead of time to be hosted by Columbia Klezmer Band students.
