If you're walking through the historic town center of Weimar on a summer night and you hear the sounds of Yiddish music echoing through the streets and over the rooftops, it can mean only one thing: one of the legendary Yiddish Summer jam sessions is happening right now!
Since 2001, our workshop participants meet at the end of the day to unwind with klezmer music, song and dance in one of Weimar's outdoor cafés. A favorite of Weimar residents and visitors alike, you never know exactly what's going to happen at a jam session. You can only be sure that there will be lots of music, laughter, people getting to know one another, and delicious food and drink, if you like. Jam sessions are for everybody, not just workshop participants!
Come join us in a very relaxed, no-pressure atmosphere, to listen, to dance, or to play along, and get a taste of what makes Yiddish Summer Weimar so special. See below for a full listing of jam session dates, times and venues.
Donations are welcome!
