Wander with us from the Carpathian to Santa Monica Mountains following a trail of songs. Back by popular demand, SFCA teams up with Klezmer trio Veretski Pass. As Jews have dispersed around the world, their music has spread and evolved. Improvised folk styles and carefully crafted new work, beloved simple songs and edgy musical experiments — all are part of the Jewish musical diaspora and are found at festivals, in synagogues and in concert halls. Works by Bernstein, Copland, Gershwin, Weill, Milhaud, Sharlin, Van Brink, and one of the premiere arrangers of Yiddish and Sephardic folk music, and this year’s Composer-Not-in-Residence, Sylke Zimpel.
