Klezmer Master CLass ... coming on April 19, 2007

Dear ___,

KlezCalifornia 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 will focus on klezmer ornamentation and the unique rhythms and sounds 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 session!

Thursday, April 19th,  7:30 -9:30 pm.

Margot will stay until 10:00 pm for Q & A.

Lecture:  The Musical World of S. An-sky

A Lecture/Presentation by Gabriella Safran

Thursday, April 26, 7:30 p.m.

The Musical World of S. An-sky: Yiddish Protest Songs, Russian Miners' Songs, and Children's Rhymes.

S. An-sky, author of the play The Dybbuk, was also an ethnomusicologist who studied the Jews of the Pale of Settlement. Stanford professor Gabriella Safran and musician Michael Alpert have produced a compact disk that combines recordings of the Yiddish folk songs collected by An-sky with new performances of the music that he collected and wrote. Safran will talk about An-sky's dynamic Russian-Jewish cultural world and play selections from the CD.  KlezCalifornia is Co-sponsoring this event.
