Presented in partnership with the Center for Traditional Music and Dance's An-sky Institute for Jewish Culture
Leading musicians Jake Shulman-Ment (violin) and Pete Rushefsky (tsimbl - hammered dulcimer) recreate the sound of Jewish Klezmer music from the Old Country - the music which inspired "Fiddler on the Roof" - and infuse it with a contemporary vitality. Family members of all ages will be entertained as they learn about this unique music and Jewish culture from Eastern Europe.
Center for Traditional Music and Dance's An-sky Institute for Jewish Culture is grateful for the support of the Keller-Shatanoff Foundation, the Atran Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council and Mayor Bloomberg.
