Come hear and explore Jewish klezmer music from Eastern Europe as it existed around the time of the shetl in Eastern Europe, through its import and arrival into America. Learn how it mixed with American jazz and other music to become something different, which we have come to know as American klezmer music, something different than its roots in Eastern Europe. Come learn and hear about the early masters to the current masters of this wonderful music of ours, and share your own thoughts and reflections as we listen and learn together about the development and progression of Jewish klezmer music in the US, right up through the Klezmer Renaissance that is still going on today!
