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!

KlezCalifornia Klezmer Workshop & Jam, with Joshua Horowitz

September 17, 2017 at 1:00 pm – 3:45 pm

Led by internationally renowned klezmer Joshua Horowitz. Josh will build up a repertoire of easy-to-learn rare tunes in the old style from the ground up. Students will learn how to finesse three traditional group accompaniment styles (Terkisher, Duevo, and Hora Lunga) and will learn ornamentation, melodic variation, fills and bass lines. He’ll tackle techniques for on-the-spot arranging, teach secrets for creating and maintaining energy, and develop bandstand communication techniques. Students will learn useful ways of practicing based on Josh’s gentle and methodical ear training and will receive notation of all tunes following the class.

No klezmer experience needed! Bring mute if you are a brass player, and recording device if you like.

Rsvp to 415.789.7679, jams@kezcalifornia.org, or just show up. Please specify which event (date/location), your name, instrument, and any questions.

$25 sliding scale, for participants; pay on site with cash or check. Refreshments included. Listeners welcome, too; donation requested.
