KlezmerQuerque Festival 2018: The 16th Annual Celebration of Klezmer Music and Dance

February 16, 2018 at 6:00 pm – February 18, 2018 at 6:00 pm

The 16th Annual KlezmerQuerque is a three-day festival featuring ‘klezmer’ dance and music which is rooted in the traditional wedding rituals of the Jews of Eastern Europe.

The festival presents a wide variety of events for all ages, abilities and budgets including a free children’s event, concerts, dance parties, lecture-presentations, and “hands-on” workshops in music and dance. Three special guest artists known for their expertise in klezmer music, scholarship and dance will be featured at all events throughout the weekend. The Grammy and Emmy award-winning founder of the klezmer revival Henry Sapoznik will be featured in performances and lecture-presentations. Klezmer clarinet virtuoso Margot Leverett will be featured in performances and workshops. Avia Moore - dance leader, teacher, and choreographer from Toronto, Canada - will be leading dances at the parties and teaching workshops. KlezmerQuerque will also feature music and dance by several local klezmer bands, dancers and soloists including: The Nahalat Shalom Community Klezmer Band, Rikud Yiddish dance troupe, The Rebbe’s Orkestra-klezmer & Judaic Band, Alavados ensemble, di Kavene Kapelye, and Beth Cohen.
