Klezmer – “Zingendik! Tantsndik! Shpilndik!” (Sing! Dance! Play!) Workshop
April 7 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Workshop with Deborah Strauss, “Zingendik! Tantsndik! Shpilndik!” (Sing! Dance! Play!)
Free and open to the public
Whether you are an experienced klezmer player or Yiddish singer, or new to the style, this hands-on workshop will offer you a feast of Eastern European Yiddish instrumental and vocal music. Taught in a lively, integrated approach—a marriage of instruments, singing and movement—we will explore new ways to express klezmer music’s full potential, both as a group and as individuals. Open to all instrumentalists, singers and dancers. All ages, levels and backgrounds welcome.
