The first in a series of events in the Humboldt Yiddish Music Festival
Workshop – Roots of Klezmer Revival 1975 to Present.
In April, 1976, a small group of musicians gave a concert in the Berkeley public library. Little did they know that the tunes they played would soon make their way to Carnegie Hall and beyond, bringing Klezmer to audiences of all ages and backgrounds around the world. Who made this music and how did it happen?
Multi-media presentation by Eleanor Shapiro, PhD, Jewish music specialist (Klezmer music is the celebratory music of Eastern European Jews).
