The Westchester Klezmer Program is hosting an afternoon of Jewish music with the world-renowned Klezmer Conservatory Band on Sunday, March 4th, 2007 at 3:00 PM at the SUNY Purchase Performing Arts Center’s PepsiCo Theater.
From the shtetls of Eastern Europe, through the emigration to America, from the jazz clubs of cities and the stages of Yiddish theater comes the music of the Klezmer Conservatory Band. Now entering its seventeenth season, the Band has performed concerts from coast to coast, and has the following recordings: Yiddishe Renaissance, Klez, and A Touch of Klez on the Vanguard Label; Oy Chanukah, A Jumpin’ Night in the Garden of Eden, Old World Beat, Live! The Thirteenth Anniversary Album and Dancing in the Aisles.
