The Norwalk Youth Symphony in partnership with INTEMPO, presents: Klezmer and More Dances
Joins us in this year’s cultural crossover partnership with INTEMPO, a local arts and youth development organization. Entering our fifth year of successful partnership and commitment to diversity, inclusion, interculturality and innovation, this year’s theme is a fusion of KLEZMER music (Yiddish name for traditional dance and ‘happy’ music from in the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern European) and other dances from Latin America!
Join us for a unique selection of repertoire and instrumentations, including an interactive klezmer performance by soloist Adrienne Greenbaum, renowned flutist and pedagogue, in which audience members will be encouraged to dance and participate in the music-making experience!
This concert will feature Argentinian tango music, Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) songs, Ecuadorian charangos, Spanish guitar, and Peruvian cajones, alongside Western musical traditions, leveling the playing field of musical expression. It will be a unique opportunity for youth and families to explore cultural identities, and for all to embrace our diversity!
This concert will take place on Saturday, March 30 at 7:00 pm and is a sell-out event-- get your tickets SOON!
