Event description

Description

Award-winning artists Susan Lankin Watts and Dan Blacksberg of the Community Klezmer Initiative host an evening of traditional and innovative Klezmer music focused on getting the crowd performing on the dance floor. Come join in as the Community Klezmer Orchestra (led by Lankin Watts) and the Klezmer in the Afternoon All-Stars (led by Blacksberg) rock the “hoyz” (Yiddish for “house”), setting the stage for dancing under the guidance of Steve Weintraub, the Pied Piper of Yiddish dance.


According to Community Klezmer Initiative (CKI) founder Susan Lankin Watts, enthusiasm for all-things klezmer is in the (local) air. “Musical jam sessions, community bands and dance parties have been attracting great crowds. We can’t wait to share this with the broader public.”
