Free Klezmer Workshop w/Winograd & Crowder

world-music
Ensemble Room – Room 110A – Evelyn and Mo Ostin Music Center

This is the first of three free klezmer workshops being offered by some of the greatest klezmer musicians out there!

About the artists teaching Worshop #1:

In 2019, clarinetist Michael Winograd released his long-awaited LP, Kosher Style, reaffirming his central role in today’s international klezmer landscape. He tours the world performing with his band the Honorable Mentshn. Additionally, he collaborates with Pakistani superstar Zeb Bangash in the group Sandaraa, records and plays with a veritable who’s who of today’s top Klezmer musicians (Frank London, Itzhak Perlman, Geoff Berner, Alicia Svigals, the Klezmer Conservatory Band, Daniel Kahn, to name a few) and appears in stadiums with Vulfpeck. A producer of records, Winograd is also the artistic director of KlezKanada and a founder of the Yiddish New York festival.

Christina Crowder has been performing and researching Jewish music for over 20 years, beginning in Budapest, Hungary, and continuing with a Fulbright grant to Romania to document Jewish music. Her current research is examining the connections between Jewish, Bessarabian, and Greek music through a project with Walter Zev Feldman at NYU Abu Dhabi, and she is the operations director of the newly founded Klezmer Institute. She has been a guest instructor in klezmer accordion and ensemble performance in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and was both the musical director and performer in the 2019 Oregon Shakespeare Festival production of the Broadway play Indecent.

Please note, in order to maintain a positive learning environment, we are limiting the number of participants to each workshop. Sign up early.

This event is made possible by The Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music. It is co-sponsored by The Mickey Katz Endowed Chair in Jewish Music and has received support from the David Vickter Foundation.
