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, May 212:00-5:00pm, in Berkeley
Led by klezmer violinist, mandolinist, and drummer Dave Rosenfeld

At the Art House Gallery & Cultural Center, 2905 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley  

We will learn a klezmer melody together, using some combination of singing, listening and playing, theory and notation, balancing tradition with practicality. Additionally, we will learn to "jam", to improvise, in a klezmer style. Be prepared to loosen up, and have a lot of fun!
