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.
The performance, directed by Steve Greenman, will allow us to enter the world of the professional East European Jewish instrumentalist, the klezmer, and experience the sounds of the shtetl (Jewish village), the synagogue and the soulful and jubilant Jewish wedding.
Bear witness to instrumental virtuosity, exuberant dances, nuanced table songs and tearful bridal melodies. Rocky River UMC member Alex Lenhart is a member of Klezmer Music Ensemble.
