More info/reservations

Delve into the wonderful world of klezmer with members of the London Klezmer Quartet. Ilana Cravitz (violin), Susi Evans (clarinet and accordion) and Indra Buraczewska (double bass & vocals) will take you deep into freylekhs, bulgars, zhoks, khosidls and terkishers, looking at the modes, ornamentation and rhythms that characterise traditional Eastern European Jewish folk music. Play in a klezmer band, be part of the ever-growing Halsway Klezmer Kapelye (big band), and learn steps for the dances that the music traditionally accompanies. Reading music is not essential as we'll be working by ear quite a bit, but we will also look at interpreting written music. All instruments are welcome. For players of grade 4 and above or equivalent.
