with Cookie Segelstein and special guest co-teacher Stefan Puchalski (from Poland)Sunday, June 23, 3:30-6:30pm, Kehilla Community Synagogue, 1300 Grand Ave., Piedmont

Klezmer music has elements of many national and regional styles and klezmer musicians had to be able to play in the styles of their customers, both Jewish and non-Jewish. We will examine some Polish folk tunes and compare Jewish and Polish styles of playing them. Stefan was one of the sources for Veretski Pass’ project, “Poyln: A Gilgul.”
The workshop is suitable for instrumentalists intermediate and above on all acoustic instruments. Registration is $25 (sliding scale – pay what you can) in cash or check at the door. Listeners welcome; donation requested. Light snacks provided. Bring a recording device or a music stand if you want. Brass players should bring a mute.
Please RSVP with name, instrument, and any questions, or just show up!
