Introduction to Klezmer & Yiddish Song July 24 – 28
10 a.m. – 1 p.m. & 3 – 6 p.m.
With Deborah Strauss & N.N.
Whether you already have some experience as a klezmer player, Yiddish singer or dancer, or you’re completely new to the style, this hands-on workshop offers a feast of Eastern European Yiddish instrumental and vocal music and dance. This workshop will be taught with a lively, integrated approach—a marriage of instruments, singing and movement. Working by ear and with written music, we will explore ways to express the full potential of Yiddish music and dance, as individuals and as a group. Daily topics will include Eastern European Jewish modality, klezmer phrasing, articulation and ornamentation, Yiddish song repertoire and style, and Yiddish dance steps, gestures and movement.
Open to instrumentalists, singers and dancers of all ages and musical backgrounds.
No knowledge of Yiddish or previous experience is necessary.
Important: Participants who only want to dance and neither play an instrument nor sing are recommended to participate in the Dance Workshop from Aug 8 – 12.
Workshop fee: Standard 345 € / Reduced 270 € / Supporter 470 € / Under 18: 180 €
