Join internationally-renowned tsimbl (hammered dulcimer) player Pete Rushefsky and violinist Jake Shulman-Ment from the Center for Traditional Music and Dance for an afternoon Hanukkah celebration exploring Jewish Klezmer music: the celebratory music of the Jews of Eastern Europe that was transplanted to New York in the early 20th century, and then revitalized by a new generation of musicians beginning in the 1970's.
From soulful spirituals to infectious dance tunes, Klezmer has much to offer listeners of all ages.
