Kidz Klezmer Band is On Hiatus
Feel free to send us an email if you’re interested, but we’re taking a break for the fall.
Klez Kidz of New York is a workshop performance group for kids in the New York area, who want to have fun and learn to play, and learn about, the Eastern European Jewish Party Music known as Klezmer Music. Along the way we will learn a little about the history, geography, and language of the culture, and how the music was used for various events.
The group is performance oriented and open to all kids, 5th grade and above, who have at least one year experience on their instrument, can play a chromatic scale, read music or learn well by ear, and play well in a group setting.
Students will have performance opportunities, with gigs at community events, hospitals, nursing homes, and the like. In addition there will be opportunities to interact with professional klezmorim (klezmer musicians).
Rehearsals will be at Stephen Wise Free Synagogue, 30 W. 68th.
Rehearsal Dates for the 2013/2014 season are: Sept. 22, 29; Oct. 6, 20, 27; Nov. 3, 10, 17, 24; Dec. 8, 15; Jan. 5, 12, 26; Feb. 2, 9, 23; Mar. 9, 16, 30; Apr. 6, May 4,11,18
