Jammin' Klezmer Sundays coming to the JCC Jan. 13 and Feb. 17

Go Back


Music is one of the those few things that can warm even the coldest of days. So why not experience how the power of music can heat up a cold Central New York winter afternoon?

The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center will host two Klezmer Sundays in the New Year. The free musical events will be held on Jan. 13 and Feb. 17, 2019 from 2–4 p.m. in the Anne and Hy Miller Family Auditorium at the JCC, 5655 Thompson Rd. in DeWitt. The performances are open to the public and anyone wishing to join in the musical “jams” is welcome. A variety of light refreshments will be served.

The local Keyna Hora Klezmer Band will be the program’s host band. Individual members of the community and independent Jewish musical groups are invited be a part of the performances.

If you would like to join in the jammin’ Klezmer Sundays and play with the host band, copies of the music will be available. However, bringing your own music stand is advisable. If you are a singer and you would like the band to accompany you, please bring copies of your music. You can also choose to perform on your own or with your own group or accompanist. People of all ages, including pre-teens are welcome to participate.

The Keyna Hora Klezmer Band’s repertoire includes traditional Jewish and Yiddish music. There will be dancers and instructors on hand to teach and lead the dancing.

Klezmer Sundays will be an excellent opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. Come for the music and stay for the schmooze!
