is delighted to be providing Bay Area musicians the opportunity to
study with Margot Leverett, one of the leading figures in contemporary
Klezmer music. Open to all melody instruments and geared toward
students with some previous exposure to klezmer, Margot's Master Class

that make it Klezmer. This is your chance to hone your klezmer chops
and reach for a more authentic sound. Participants will learn at least
3 klezmer tunes and the class will end with a rousing klezmer jam
Thursday, April 19th, 7:30 -9:30 pm.
Margot will stay until 10:00 pm for Q & A.
