Instrumental Klezmer Workshop

Thursday, May 04th, 2017
6:30pm

In 2011 we added a Klezmer Workshop to the series, and it has been slowly and steadily gaining momentum. We hope that in our beautiful new setting it will continue to flourish. Often led by series director, Aaron Alexander, the focus is on learning classic klezmer repertoire – usually we’ll learn a couple tunes every week. We learn common dance forms and their proper rhythms, the common klezmer modes, melodic ornamentation, accompanying parts, and whatever people want to learn. We often will have the concert artist lead the workshop. In the past we’ve had Pete Sokolow, Frank London, Michael Winograd, Margot Leverett, Zevy Zions, Matt Darriau, and others guest lead the workshop.

Bring your own instrument and music stand. We learn both by ear and with written music. Music will usually, but not always, be available for C, Bb, and Eb instruments.

There is a discounted fee if you take the workshop and attend the concert – $35

Vocal Harmony Duos & Trios with Don Friedman and Phyllis Elkind

Sunday, May 7th, 2017
2:00PM-4:00PM
Explore the rich world of Early Country, Bluegrass, Old Time, and Gospel harmony singing, from lesser-known repertoire to old chestnuts. Focus on two and three-part harmony singing, with opportunities to gain independence on a part, work in small groups, experiment with blend, and take home some new songs. Less advanced singers can start with the melody and then move to harmonizing, and more advanced singers can go deep into singing multiple parts.

Vocal Harmony Basics with Don Friedman and Phyllis Elkind

Sunday, May 7th, 2017

Dive in head-first to the joys of traditional American harmony singing: learn harmony parts to Old Time, Early Country, Bluegrass, and Gospel standards, experience the thrill of singing close harmony with others, develop an understanding of chords and intervals, and gain tools to start finding harmony parts on your own. Less advanced singers will learn the basics, and more advanced singers will be able to fill in some gaps of what they don't already know.
