East Village Klezmer Series

The series continues after a break with another great lineup of klezmorim for the winter/spring series at the Center for Jewish Arts and Literacy, in the 6th St. Community Synagogue.
This season we add a partnership once a month with the wonderful organization, Center for Traditional Music and Dance, featuring their Tantshoyz, Klezmer Dance Parties. The format for these events will change a little – they will be focused on dance leading and the jam session will start a bit later. Many of the musicians are people who’ve been featured on the series in the past.
Our workshops continue from 6-7:30, but the Yiddish class will not start until mid February. Watch for an update for the exact date.
Come out and support new Yiddish culture.
Tell your friends!
See you there!
