Schmaltz!, Evanston, IL, 8 Sep 2016


Thurs, September 8 at 5:30 PM
The Merion Folk Series
1611 Chicago Avenue
Evanston, IL, 60201.

Applying Chicago’s jazz world to the performance style of the middle of the century New York Yiddish theatre, old standards, and Sephardic and Klezmer songs, Schmaltz! rubs songs like And the Angels Sing and Bei Mir Bis du Schoen to a fresh patina with their total of over 150 years of music experience. Rebecca Toon's sensuous vocal and interpretive brilliance is sandwiched between her bright smile and her wickedly fun wit and humor. Henry Meisels sings tenor opera and the Jewish repertoire in ChickenFat Orchestra. There is no charge to attend, but this is the residents' dinner concert. You are welcome and might feel more comfortable ordering a drink and/or a dinner (they're good!).
