The concert featuring the Seattle Yiddish Fest faculty.
This concert is featuring the new program by Lorin Sklamberg (The Klezmatics, Semer Ensemble), Sasha Lurje (Forshpil, Lebedik, Semer Ensemble) and Craig Judelman (Lebedik, Litvakus) called "Love, Death and Revolution in Yiddish Song". From old folk ballads to rousing Yiddish theater and the Golden Age of the Lower East Side this is an insiders tour of your favorite songs you've never heard. Joined by multi-instrumentalist Ilya Shneyveys and Cantor Sarah Myerson, this is an event not to be missed!
The concert will be followed by a Yiddish dance with the band and dancing led by Sarah Myerson. This is a unique chance to experience Yiddish dancing in a group with a live band. No dance experience needed! Yiddish dancing is very accessible to all. And it also is very enjoyable to watch! Bring your dance shoes and lomir tantsn! (let's dance!)
The number of places is limited.
