Lace up your dancing shoes for a special Tantshoyz Yiddish Dance Party featuring the Sadigursky Wedding Band and Michael Alpert. Born in Belts, Moldova, the Los Angeles-based clarinetist/accordionist Isaac Sadigursky is one of the last remaining links to the Bessarabian klezmer tradition and its rich Ottoman/Balkan-influenced repertoire. Sadigursky will lead an all-star band featuring trumpeter Frank London, violinist Jake Shulman-Ment, bassist Benjy Fox-Rosen, and son Sam Sadigursky on reeds. Dancing will be led by klezmer revival pioneer Michael Alpert, who will interview Sadigursky at the beginning of the program. Folks new to Yiddish Dance absolutely welcome!

Presented in partnership with the Workmen's Circle.
