This overview of the Klezmer genre will explore the meaning of the melodies, the classic Klezmer repertoire of weddings, simchas, after-the-wedding, and much more. The class will feature live music.

Musicians and non-musicians are welcome. If you can actually play any Klezmer, bring your instrument. You won’t actually play, but it should look nice!
