Introduction to Yiddish Song Workshop
July 20 - 25, 2023
10 a.m. – 1 p.m. & 3 – 6 p.m.
with Sasha Lurje, Sanne Möricke and Benjy Fox-Rosen
Ideal both for newcomers to Yiddish Song and for more experienced singers who are ready to go deeper into repertoire, style and cultural meaning, this workshop takes you into the diverse and moving world of traditional and contemporary Yiddish song. Led by a world-class team of Yiddish song creators and interpreters, this workshop is not only for singers! Instrumentalists who want to better understand the connections between instrumental and vocal repertoire and style, or who want to improve their accompaniment skills, are also very welcome! This workshop will also offer a taste of this year’s special topic: Greco-Turkish-Yiddish Connections. No prior knowledge of the Yiddish language or of Yiddish song is necessary.
We also highly recommend the workshop “A Speed Date with Judaism: 3000 Years in 3 Days" to everyone who would like to learn more about the Jewish thought and rituals that provide the cultural context and deeper meanings of Yiddish music.
Workshop fee: 465 € Standard / 315 € Reduced / 645 € Sponsor / 165 € under 18
