Can we write a new klezmer tune together in just 20 minutes? There’s only one way to find out…
Join Nat Seelen, Artistic Director of the Boston Festival of New Jewish Music and clarinetist with Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band to demystify the (klezmer) compositional process. We’ll talk about the basic building blocks of klezmer music, discuss an approach to writing new music in the klezmer tradition, and then create a brand new tune using your input, all in the amount of time it takes to eat a proper bagel and lox.
