Event description

Description

Don’t believe what you’ve been told about “Klezmer. ”

Klezmer isn’t just a bunch of songs and ornaments, but rather, a transcendent approach to music and life in general.

Clarinetist, Jason Ditzian has been leading Bay Area klezmer ensemble, Kugelplex since 2003. The group takes an expansive approach to the “old-world soul” music of the Yiddish-speaking folks of Eastern Europe and beyond.

In this workshop for musicians of all levels, Jason will discuss his ecstatic approach to klezmer and “Jewish music” in general. Then we’ll play a few songs together and experiment with different ways to approach the music, with an emphasis on philosophy, improvisation, self-expression, and creative energy.

Come back that evening at 8:00pm for a live performance of Kugelplex (paid ticket required).
