Whether an instrumentalist or vocalist, we are all part of the same musical mishpucha!*  Dive deep into the relationship between instrumental and vocal style in this fascinating workshop open to instrumentalists and vocalists of all levels.  What gives Yiddish or klezmer music its unique flavor? How do you transfer Yiddish vocal style to an instrument? Learn all of that and more in this fun installment of the Klezmer Workshop Series featuring famed Klezmer fiddler, Craig Judelman and sonorous Yiddish singer, Sasha Lurje.

Enjoy the added bonus of a 30-minute concert performed by these two musicians.

This event is made possible by the Lowell Milken Center for Music of American Jewish Experience at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music with additional generous support from the David Vickter Foundation.

*The Yiddish word ‘Mishpuche’ stems from the Hebrew “Mishpacha” and means family. Like the word family, the meaning of “Mishpuche” can be extended to close friends.

Music Performance Studies Today: "The Ephemerality of Musical Hearing"
Given the ephemerality of performance, what are key issues behind the transmission of musical remembrance? How can we narrow the divide between what Diana Taylor calls the “archive” of enduring materials, such as texts, documents, and buildings, and the “more ephemeral ‘repertoire’ of embodied practice/knowledge,” such as “spoken language, dance, sports, ritual” and, we add, music performance?
