Free admission. Donations gratefully accepted.

PLEASE NOTE!  In case of bad weather this concert will be postponed to the next day. If the weather is still bad on the second day the concert will unfortunately have to be canceled. Please register here to receive updates about all changes.

As the courtyard of the Alte Synagoge is very small and can only accomodate a small audience, there will be two short concerts (ca 50 min), one at 7.30 p.m. and the other one at 9 p.m.



Did you know that the roots of the Yiddish language and culture lie in German-speaking lands over 1000 years ago? In this program, two extraordinary musician-scholars take you on a journey through the Western and Eastern epochs of Yiddish and traverse the almost forgotten bridges between German and Yiddish traditional song.

Line-up:
Diana Matut (D) – voice & recorder
Andreas Schmitges (D) – guitar, mandolin, voice

Advance ticket reservation is mandatory!
