Event description

Description

Come join us for a day devoted to learning, listening and playing the klezmer tradition on stringed instruments. We will spend the day in workshops with Deborah Strauss and Jeff Warschauer, our special guest artists for the occasion, learning rhythms, melodies, chords and more, by ear (with sheet music available) as part of a wonderful Yiddish Orchestra. Towards the end of the day, we will move into concert mode, listening to Deborah and Jeff and then getting up to play what we’ve learned for family, friends and the general public. It’s a wonderful chance for an all-day immersion into a wild and beautiful musical tradition. Violin and other bowed strings are central to the tradition, but we welcome other string instruments, especially guitars and mandolins (other instruments (by consultation: email worldfiddledaytoronto@gmail.com).

Co-presented with Ashkenaz Foundation http://www.ashkenaz.ca/ , with the support of Polyphonic Ground https://polyphonicground.com/

Polyphonic Ground is the shared platform for a collective of 10 GTA music presenters, made possible through grants from Canada Council, Canadian Heritage, Ontario Media Development Corporation and the Toronto
