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.

Part of a week-long residency at the McIntire Department of Music at UVA, co-sponsored by the UVA Jewish Studies Program, the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies, the Brody Jewish Center, and the Front Porch.
