KlezCalifornia promotes and celebrates Yiddish culture in the San Francisco Bay Area

We warmly invite you to participate in KlezCalifornia's next:

Klezmer Workshop & Jam
Sunday, April 302:00-5:00pm
Led by internationally-renowned klezmer violinist Cookie Segelstein

At Congregation B'nai Emunah

3595 Taraval St, San Francisco, CA 94116 
Scroll down to learn about two jams in May! 

Includes learning tunes by ear with authentic klezmer style. Participants of all ages welcome. Must be at least intermediate level on your instrument. All instruments welcome except electrified instruments. No klezmer experience needed, but it doesn't hurt! Sound files will be provided before and sheet music (when available) after the session. The tunes will be learned in a call and response way with an emphasis on style and ornaments, melodic variation and accompaniment tricks. Jamming will be part of the class, in a learning atmosphere. Audio recording devices encouraged! 

$25 sliding scale, for participants; pay on site with cash or check. Refreshments included. Listeners welcome, too; donation requested.
RSVP to jams[at] and specify date/location, your name, instrument, and any questions. Or just show up!
