A Bisl: Member to Member Learning Exchange

What is A Bisl? In Yiddish, it means “a little bit.” For Boston Workers Circle members, it means a chance to learn and share a little bit about a topic that excites you

 

In this time of isolated virtual reality, we're hearing from members that folks want places to connect. So, in collaboration with the Adult Education Committee, BWC is opening up this virtual member to member learning exchange series, A Bisl.

 

These member offerings will take place over Zoom, almost every Monday at 8:30pm EST and Saturday at 2:00pm EST. The line-up below will be updated regularly so check back for new topics.

The Migration of Klezmer to America, led by Sherry Mayrent

Saturday, May 30th, 2:00pm EST

 

The arduous journey to America undertaken by so many Jews in the early years of the 20th century and their desire to become true citizens of their new country had profound effects on the music they brought with them.  Using 78 rpm commercial recordings, this session will look at the sound of klezmer music in Europe and what happened to it after it arrived in the golden land.
