Metropolitan Klezmer 25th Anniversary: Jubilation!
Now celebrating their 25th year together, Metropolitan Klezmer brings eclectic exuberance to Yiddish musical genres from all over the map. Performing vibrant versions of gems from wedding dance, trance, folk, swing, and tango styles, as well as soundtrack material from vintage Yiddish films, this octet reinvents tradition with irreverence, respect, and joy. This special performance will also feature a rarely heard repertoire including balladry of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, a Yiddish-rooted Soviet animation score, and a gorgeous range of imaginative original compositions.
This event is part of Metropolitan Klezmer’s Jubilation! 25th Anniversary Octet Concerts Series.
Jubilation! is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by LMCC. All proceeds benefit Metropolitan Klezmer, the Museum at Eldridge Street, and Village Preservation
