ABOUT THE EVENING
National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene’s unparalleled success with the long-lost operetta The Golden Bride has inspired us to embark upon a critical research project to identify and restore forgotten works of the Yiddish Theatre canon for the enjoyment of contemporary audiences.

An exclusive preview concert of this rediscovered music will be presented at The Golden Gala, performed by stars of The Golden Bride: Rachel Policar, Cameron Johnson and Adam B. Shapiro. They will be joined by performers Grace Field and Daniel Greenwood and accompanied by a 16-piece orchestra under the baton of Zalmen Mlotek.

HONORARY CO-CHAIRS:
Margot Astrachan, Jason Robert Brown, Douglas Denoff,
Joe DiPietro, Sheldon Harnick, Mandy Patinkin, Daryl Roth

The Klezmer Nutcracker—Shirim Klezmer Orchestra, Cambridge, MA, 4 Dec 2016

album coverShirim Klezmer Orchestra perform "The Klezmer Nutcracker"

Sunday, 4 Dec, 3pm
Club Passim,
47 Palmer St.,
Cambridge, MA
617-492-5300

tickets $20/16. Celebrate Chanukah and Christmas all at once! Bring the kids, bring your grandmother! Be ready to move. This is music for the soul.

Shirim’s legendary klezmer rendition of the Nutcracker is a brilliant cross-cultural achievement which is fun, serious and rocking all at once. They distill the classic ballet suite down to its folky essence and will change the way you think of Tchaikovsky forever. Emphasizing the Eastern European elements of the score with witty intelligence and playful irreverence, Shirim redefines the modern melting pot of "world music." Its overwhelming virtuosity in both the performance and musical conception harken back to the manic genius of Spike Jones' classical parodies and the artistry of Ellington's classic transcription.

This family-friendly Sunday afternoon concert will feature the Klezmer Nutcracker, traditional klezmer tunes as well as Yiddish holiday favorites sung by Anneke Reich.

This year we are thrilled to announce the 2016 ACDIY Awardee, Irena Klepisz, poet, translator, teacher and former colleague, friend and creative collaborator of Adrienne's. In past years, the concert has also served as a fundraiser. Many of you donated generously, over and above the ticket price, to add to the benefit of the whole. This year we are constricted to raising funds outside of the concert, due to our partnership stipulations, so as we go forward we especially need to turn to your enthusiasm and support in a new way.

Shepherd and the SklambergsSklamberg & the Shepherds

Wed, 22 Mar, 2017
National Centre for Early Music
York, UK

Three renowned performers of Eastern European Jewish music come together in this exceptional new trio: Lorin Sklamberg, co-founder of the legendary Klezmatics; uniquely innovative clarinetist Merlin Shepherd, and the remarkable vocalist/pianist Polina Shepherd, originally from Siberia.
Each performer represents a different nation, yet their backgrounds are closely related, their ancestors emigrating from the Ukraine to find a better world elsewhere. This fresh collaboration blends traditional and contemporary Yiddish and Russian song with klezmer styles and Southern Mediterranean music. Influenced by several cultures and maintaining individual styles, the trio plays original and traditional material with freedom and spontaneity. With mournful solo clarinet, bouncy village songs, and some fiery vocals, their performance takes us on a breathtaking musical journey that is full of spirited joy and deep emotion.
