Join Kahal B’raira for a Community Gathering, featuring a service, time to schmooze, and and a talk by Christina Crowder:
The Kiselgof-Makovetsky Digital Manuscript Project connects international klezmer musicians today with klezmer musicians from more than 100 years ago. The collection contains approximately 1,400 melodies, from simple dance tunes to elaborate, classically-informed show pieces. Christina Crowder, a celebrated accordion player and ethnomusicologist will describe the project’s history and perform highlights of the project’s musical pieces.
