The Sheet Music is Lying! How to Interpret Written Klezmer

May 6, 2018 at 3:45 pm – 6:45 pm

We've heard that using sheet music for klezmer is sacrilegious and disrespectful. But can it be done? This class will explore the ways that klezmer sheet music can be misleading, and provide advice for what to do when faced with a piece of music that's written down (Hint: we can do more than put it in the trash!).

All ages & acoustic instruments welcome
For intermediate level players or above
No klezmer experience needed, but it doesn't hurt!
Light refreshments included
Listeners welcome - donation requested
Tickets at the door, cash or check only. $25 (or pay what you can)
Please RSVP to 415.789.7679 or, and tell us what instrument you play. Drop-ins welcome.
