Yiddish Art Trio CD Launch Concert at the Vilna Shul

The Vilna Shul, 18 Phillips St., Boston, MA 02114
 
Featuring three of New York’s most celebrated klezmer musicians, the Yiddish Art Trio blends infectious traditional melodies with new compositions, sumptuous chamber music-like arrangements and breathtaking improvisations. This rising new ensemble is out to redefine the sound of contemporary klezmer.
 
The trio formed in early 2009 as the Michael Winograd Klezmer Trio, and has toured nationally and internationally to critical acclaim, most recently teaching at Yiddish Summer Weimar, for the theme, "New Yiddish Music." These three performer/composers are stretching the limits of tradition, re-composing and re-contextualizing Yiddish music for the concert hall and the dance floor. They incorporate elements of new classical music, minimalism, art song, as well as Yiddish vocal music, cantorial music and theater music into an energetic and at times introspective concert program.
 
The Yiddish Art Trio is comprised internationally accomplished, genre-transcending musicians, who have performed with such noted musicians as Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, Frank London, Ben Holmes, Alicia Svigals and others. The Trio is made up of Patrick Farrell on accordion, Benjy Fox-Rosen on voice and bass and Michael Winograd on clarinet. 
 
Tickets are $15/general admission and $12/members, students, and seniors with valid ID. Children under 10 are free. Come and enjoy some drinks and apps downstairs 30 minutes before the show begins upstairs.
