Klezmer Concert with Jake Shulman-Ment
Born in New York City, Jake Shulman-Ment is among the most highly regarded klezmer musicians performing today. He tours and records internationally as a soloist as well as with other musicians.
In this special performance, he will present traditional Jewish melodies, his own original compositions, and Yiddish songs which originated from shared roots in German medieval folk music.
The German Cultural Center Santa Cruz has noticed that in the recent decade a number of people in the U.S., and here in Santa Cruz, whose families had to leave Germany during the Holocaust, have become German citizens. Hosting this concert is the Center’s way to pay a tribute to klezmer, welcome people to the German Cultural Center, and have fun together.
The event will be held at 230 Plymouth St., Santa Cruz. Tickets are $20. For reservations, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
