Save the date!
Now celebrating their 25th year together, Metropolitan Klezmer brings eclectic exuberance to Yiddish musical genres from all over the map. Performing vibrant versions of gems from wedding dance, trance, folk, swing, and tango styles, as well as soundtrack material from vintage Yiddish films, this octet reinvents tradition with irreverence, respect, and joy. This special performance will also feature a rarely heard repertoire including balladry of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, a Yiddish-rooted Soviet animation score, and a gorgeous range of imaginative original compositions.
This quarter-century / silver jubilee event is part of Metropolitan Klezmer’s Jubilation! 25th Anniversary Octet Concerts Series, presented in partnership with Village Preservation and the Museum at Eldridge Street...
