12/08/12 – WBJC Klezmer Special – 9pm

By WBJC Programming | Posted in Holiday Programs, Old Holiday | 7 Comments

Join Jonathan Palevsky for a musical celebration of Hanukkah with spirited klezmer works performed by contemporary ensembles.

Wikipedia says: “klezmer is ‘a combination of Hebrew words: kli, meaning ‘a useful or prepared instrument, tool, or utensil’ and zemer, meaning ‘to make music’; leading to k’li zemer כְּלִי זֶמֶר, literally ‘vessels of song’ = ‘musical instrument’.” Klezmer music originated in Eastern Europe and is influenced heavily by the Romanian music style with some influence from Greece, Turkey and the Ukraine.
