We warmly invite you to participate in KlezCalifornia's next
two events, both in May:
Klezmer Workshop & Jam
Sunday, May 7, 2:00-5:00pm, in Palo Alto
Led by klezmer violinist & violist Cookie Segelstein.
At a private home in Palo Alto
If you missed the great workshop with Cookie in San Francisco last Sunday, you have another opportunity this Sunday in Palo Alto!
Learn tunes by ear with authentic klezmer style. Tunes will be learned in a call and response way with an emphasis on style and ornaments, melodic variation and accompaniment tricks. Jamming will be part of the class, in a learning atmosphere. Audio recording devices encouraged!
Tell your friends by sharing the
Facebook event page for May 7
Sunday, May 21, 2:00-5:00pm, in Berkeley
Led by klezmer violinist, mandolinist, and drummer Dave Rosenfeld
At the Art House Gallery & Cultural Center, 2905 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley
We will learn a klezmer melody together, using some combination of singing, listening and playing, theory and notation, balancing tradition with practicality. Additionally, we will learn to "jam", to improvise, in a klezmer style. Be prepared to loosen up, and have a lot of fun!
