Balkan Music &
Dance Workshops
Virtual Camp

While we regret the cancelation of both our Mendocino and Iroquois Springs workshops due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to have presented our first-ever, completely online Virtual Camps, each with three days of immersive classes, live-music performances, and community gatherings. Virtual Camp West Coast (July 17-19, 2020) was a great success, with 350 people registered. Our East Coast Virtual Camp (August 14-16) is now complete, with over 380 attendees!

Registration is now closed for both camps. Stay tuned for more EEFC-sponsored virtual events & classes!

The Promiscuous World of Jewish Music

The Promiscuous World of Jewish Music
Lecture Series by Joshua Horowitz
Join me in a series of free Zoom lectures on an array of fascinating aspects of Jewish music in the world today and yesterday. These lectures were created for my class at Sonoma State University for the past 5 years and deal with a different topic each week. The lectures use videos, historical photos and recordings, and occasional live music combined with a Power Point Screen Share. There is a Zoom limit of 100 participants. The lectures run from 1 hour to 1.5 hours and are fun and informative. Donations are accepted and appreciated, but not required. Participate in a rousing Q & A or just relax and listen in the comfort of your home with a hot cup of chocolate or whatever is left in your wine rack.
