The Minnesota Orchestra will welcome the Klezmatics — the Grammy Award-winning superstars of klezmer — 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8 at Orchestra Hall, 1111 Nicollet Ave., Minneapolis. (The concert was previously scheduled for Oct. 9.) The Minnesota Orchestra will not perform on this program.
Descended from the centuries-old Jewish cantillation of the Middle East, klezmer music began in the Yiddish-speaking world of Eastern Europe, where it became a fixture in Jewish culture.
Since 1912 the AJW has served as an important news resource for the Jewish community. The Jewish World unites the main Jewish communities in St. Paul and Minneapolis, as well as those in Duluth, Rochester and smaller cities, and bridges the divides between the various Jewish religious streams.
