Chicago Klezmer Ensemble

Artist / Program Description: 
Chicago Klezmer Ensemble is known for its elegant and knowledgeable performance style that retains the earthy, human, and expressive qualities that give klezmer music a direct contact with its listeners. Klezmer music – Jewish instrumental music of Eastern Europe – possesses a unique language to be discovered, developed, and extended to create a balance between past and future. The Chicago Klezmer Ensemble musicians meet this task through their remarkable ability to draw out and amplify the unique characteristics from the core of the klezmer repertoire which enables them to perform the music in an authentic manner and extend the style through new ideas and compositions.
