Featuring 17 of the world’s leading Jewish music instrumentalists and Yiddish song interpreters, from Hungary, the US, France, Israel, the UK,the Netherlands, Russia and Canada, this is authentic Eastern-European soul music straight out of old Bukhovina. With the scintillating vocals of Shura Lipovsky (NL), the quirky multi-national quartet the Brothers Nazaroff (DE/US/RU/HU), the ever charming local-boy-hero Josh Dolgin (CA) and the Klezmatics’ Lorin Sklamberg (US), this thrilling lineup of art song singers, clarinet virtuosi, Yiddish troubadours and brass-band mavens is sure to have you scissor-kicking in the aisles and all in benefit of the KlezKanada Scholarship Program.
This summer’s program is filled with amazing opportunities to learn, play, sing, dance, act, speak and hear Yiddish, collaborate, create art, and be a part of our vibrant cultural community.
