The Klezmer Music Ensemble is dedicated to learning and performing traditional East European Jewish folk music (Klezmer Music). This important genre of world music involves a specialized performance style, a unique repertoire, and chamber-music interaction. Classes will consist of two-hour sessions (once a week) culminating with performances to be scheduled at the end of each semester. The ensemble is open by audition to all CWRU and CIM instrumentalists and vocalists. No prior klezmer music experience required.
