Mahadrin Klezmer Music Ensemble
NOTE: This class will resume in the FALL (2011)
This band offers a creative outlet for the study, performance, and ultimately, preservation, of klezmer music in a relaxed and non-judgmental, but serious, environment. While some degree of basic musicianship is requested (ability to play by ear and/or sight-read, basic competence on at least one instrument), the group is open to musicians with different levels of musicianship and backgrounds.
Don't know what klezmer is? Come find out firsthand and learn to play one of the world's greatest and most quickly evolving musical folk genres. This is an ongoing course and all of the information provided before is still applicable.
We are in transition right now: the time/location listed is tentative. If you are interested in participating, just sign up via this site, and we'll keep you posted with info.
