Klezmer and Beyond (EN/PL)

28.06.2023 - 12:00 / Festival Tent, ul. Józefa 36

Come join New York City based musicians Frank London and Michael Winograd for a two day exploration of Ashkenazi Jewish musical traditions during the Jewish Culture Festival. In this workshop we will learn melodies from Klezmer and Hasidic traditions and beyond.  What makes these melodies and styles unique? How do we approach these melodies on our instruments?  In these sessions we will work on using various techniques and ornamentation to enhance these melodies. 

Whether you are new to Jewish music, are looking to expand your repertoire and knowledge of Klezmer and Hasidic Nigunim, or are a consummate professional and you want to dive even deeper into the aesthetics of Ashkenazi musical traditions, this is for you!  Bring your instruments and your voices, and even your friends.

Free admission cards available at; limited number of participants (25 persons); workshop for musicians (please bring your instruments) as well as for those without musical experience.
