A l i c i a S v i g a l s and her Ensemble

Wednesday, September 24, 2003
8 p.m.
School of Management Auditorium
595 Commonwealth Ave.

Violinist Alicia Svigals, who is considered by many to be the world's leading klezmer fiddler, was a founder of the renowned Jewish roots groups the Klezmatics, and of her current band, the all-female Mikveh. As a musician and composer, she has worked with Itzhak Perlman, the Kronos Quartet, playwrights Tony Kushner and Eve Ensler, Allen Ginsburg, Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, Hasidic superstar Avraham Fried, and singer/songwriter Debbie Friedman.

She has been at the forefront of the Klezmer revival, rediscovering and reinventing the sound of the Klezmer fiddle, the central instrument in klezmer music before the Holocaust. A musician and composer, Svigals is widely acclaimed for her virtuosic technique and lyricism.

Svigals will be joined by an old-world string band made up of Boston's finest klezmer musicians, including members of the Klezmer Conservatory Band and of Andy Statman's ensemble: Jim Guttman, bass; Miriam Rabson and Rohan Gregory, violins; Pete Rushefsky, tsimbl; and Larry Eagle, percussion.

Free and open to the public. For information call 617-353-8096.
