Arienne Pelletier


With Jeffrey B. Weinstock. Much more than “Jewish music,” klezmer has accompanied Central and Eastern European Jews on their centuries-old wanderings, with various influences (religious, secular, Jewish, and foreign) and a snapshot of traditional life in the shtetl and modern life in cosmopolitan cities like New York, Buenos Aires, and Paris. Discover klezmer’s origins, styles, and genres, and how it survived the Holocaust and was revitalized in the 1970s. No knowledge of Yiddish or Hebrew is required-only the ability to tap your toes! Virtual. Please register in advance and the program link will be sent to you.
