Introduction to Yiddish Song
July 30 - August 4
10 a.m. – 1 p.m. & 3 – 6 p.m.
with Patrick Farrell, Daniel Kahn & Sveta Kundish
Ideal both for newcomers to Yiddish Song and for more experienced singers who are ready to go deeper into repertoire, style and cultural meaning, this workshop takes you into the diverse and moving world of traditional and contemporary Yiddish song. Led by a world-class team of Yiddish song creators and interpreters, this workshop is not only for singers! Instrumentalists who want to better understand the connections between instrumental and vocal repertoire and style, or who want to improve their accompaniment skills, are also very welcome! While focused primarily on Yiddish repertoire, the workshop will also include some repertoire that represents this year’s special topic: Greco-Turkish-Yiddish Connections. No prior knowledge of the Yiddish language or of Yiddish song is necessary.
