A Musical World Recaptured: Klezmer and Yiddish Music Before the Holocaust
A Concert and Commemoration to Benefit the Vilna Shul,
Boston’s Center for Jewish Culture

Featuring Shir Madness Klezmer Band.

Saturday, April 6, 2013, 7:30 pm
Vilna Shul
18 Phillips Street,
Boston, MA

Tix: $18, $12 for students and seniors.

The rich and vibrant world of Yiddish music, like European Jewry itself, seemed nearly destroyed in the Holocaust, but the legacy of Yiddish music has not been lost. As we commemorate Yom HaShoah this year, we will also celebrate the living heritage of the music that has survived and now thrives again.

From the folk dances that became klezmer wedding staples, to Yiddish theatre tunes, to songs of resistance and of the Jewish labor movement, we will sing and play Jewish music—in remembrance of those we lost, and in celebration of a living tradition that we are passing to future generations.
