San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for an afternoon musical journey through ancient to present Klezmer and Yiddish culture, stories and bubbameisters (if you don't know what this means, come to the concert!).
NEW LOCATION: We are excited to announce that the Burton Theater (home of the Cass City Cinema) will be hosting this concert. The former Burton International School has been transformed into a very cool studio for artists and movie/concert theatre. There is free, secure parking adjacent to the building, air conditioning and very comfortable seating. This will be a great improvement in both comfort and acoustics for this wonderful, rare presentation! There is chair lift on the stairs for fuller accessibility (call ahead to Barbara, 313-891-2514 for special needs).
Yale Strom is "An award-winning musician, author, filmmaker and scholar, this maverick does so many things with such great skill and vision that he's in a league of his own."
- George Varga, Music Critic of the San Diego Union-Tribune
Elizabeth Schwartz is celebrated for her uniquely dusky timbre. Multiple reviews hail her "soulful", "passionate" and "penetrating" vocals. She has drawn numerous comparisons to both Edith Piaf and Maria Tanase.
Yiddish songs and klezmer tunes — some traditional,
some found during Yale’s ethnographic 30-year treks to
Eastern Europe and some originals by the duo.
They will also weave in stories from their journeys to
Eastern Europe, particularly from Romania.

When & Where
Creative Arts Collective
Creative Arts Collective (CAC) has been presenting jazz and creative music in Detroit and throughout the world since 1978. It is a nonprofit 501 (C)(3) charity dedicated to the presentation, preservation and creation of jazz, creative music and artistic expression.
Directed by jazz composer/guitarist A. Spencer Barefield, CAC has made its mark both locally and internationally. Its 13-year concert series at the Detroit Institute of Arts boldly presented collaborations between Barefield and other Detroit-based artists — such as Tani Tabbal, Jaribu Shahid, Dave McMurray, Tony Holland, Roy Brooks, Faruq Z. Bey, James Carter, Regina Carter, Geri Allen, Marcus Belgrave and many others — with jazz greats such as Roscoe Mitchell, Leroy Jenkins, George Lewis, Douglas Ewart, Muhal Richard Abrams, Richard Davis, Andrew Cyrille, Anthony Davis, Lester Bowie, Reggie Workman and a long list of others. CAC's contributions to the cultural scene in Michigan earned it the Governor's Arts Award for most valuable arts organization.
CAC continues to present concerts throughout the US and internationally. Many of its concerts have been broadcast on National Public Radio and have been released on CDs. CAC has been producing the Palmer Woods Music in Homes concerts since 2007, as well as performances throughout Michigan, the US and internationally. More info at www.spencerbarefield.com
