Based in the city of Botosani, in Romanian Moldavia, Shulman-Ment conducted field research with elderly Roma (Gypsy) musicians, organized and performed in a ten-city musical tour of old Romanian synagogues, and even played for the US Ambassador as a soloist with the regional folk orchestra. Klezmer pioneer Michael Alpert will serve as a respondent for the lecture. After the lecture, please join us in the Great Hall for a Tantshoyz Yiddish Dance Party led by Michael Alpert featuring rare Romanian-Jewish repertoire and a free reception.
