Featuring vocalist Zhenya Lopatnik, a recent émigré from Ukraine and already a leading voice in a new generation of Yiddish singers and songwriters. Her songs will transport you from the world of your forebears that was cut short by war and migration to contemporary Jewish music in Roma-Klezmer style!
Backing up Zhenya are Israel-born guitarist Oren Neiman (currently making music in Joel Grey’s Yiddish Fiddler on the Roof in NYC) and Argentina-born clarinetist Ivan Barenboim (artist-in-residence at Central Synagogue now working on solo clarinet meditations on Jewish sound).
WE REGRET THAT WE HAVE REACHED CAPACITY FOR THIS PROGRAM and can take no more reservations. Please email us if you’d like to be informed of the next event sponsored by the Saul Haffner Jewish Enrichment Fund.
