Come and discover the joys of klezmer with Ilana Cravitz (fiddle), one of the UK’s top teachers and performers..  Over the course of the week you'll learn how to play the soulful and celebratory music of Jews from Eastern Europe from the last century. We’ll be looking at tunes, ornamentation and accompaniment, as well as dance steps to go with the melodies that form this rich & enjoyable musical tradition.
Open to all instruments and ages. Minimum instrumental proficiency Grade 5 or equivalent; no klezmer experience necessary.

In association with the Jewish Music Institute.
