Songs of the Jewish Ukrainian Heartland

As war rages on, we join together to sing songs and tell stories of one of the main homelands of Yiddishkeit. Old songs of forbidden loves, boy soldiers, the wonders of nature and looming dangers are always relevant. Ukraine also was the source of our most important collections of old-time klezmer tunes. Three of the world’s most in-demand Klezmer musicians, Michael Alpert, Sasha Lurje and Craig Judelman, bring together a diverse repertoire to paint a picture of Jewish life in Ukraine.

In person event. Video streaming link will be sent to live stream ticket holders. 

Michael Alpert is one of the most well known Yiddish culture bearers in the world, having been involved in the revitalization of Yiddish music and dance on both coasts of the US and abroad since its inception in the late 70’s with bands such as Kapelye, Brave Old World, Itzhak Perlman and more. The 2015 recipient of the Nation Heritage Award is joined by two of the driving forces in the thriving Berlin klezmer scene - celebrated Latvian singer Sasha Lurje and violinist, composer and arranger Craig Judelman. After teaching and performing together at klezmer festivals and workshops around the world, these artists launched this new trio in 2020, sadly playing only 2 concerts before Covid got in the way. Now they join together for a rare west coast tour in solidarity with their friends and loved ones under the cloud of war.
