The boys used to make fun of me, but I played better than them all — Elaine Hoffman Watts z”l
Ten female artists come to together to create new traditions and pathways in klezmer music. Fronted by trumpet virtuoso Susan Watts, this new super group features many of today’s leading klezmer musicians including Ilene Stahl (clarinet), Alicia Svigals and Deborah Strauss (violin), Adrianne Greenbaum (flute), Lauren Brody (accordion), Marilyn Lerner (piano), Rachel Lemisch (trombone), Jordan Morton (bass) and Lorie Wolf (drums). Featuring new compositions by the band members and reimagined traditional music, this special concert pays tribute to women klezmorim past and present.
