Wander with us from the Carpathian to Santa Monica Mountains following a trail of songs. Back by popular demand, SFCA teams up with Klezmer trio Veretski Pass. As Jews have dispersed around the world, their music has spread and evolved. Improvised folk styles and carefully crafted new work, beloved simple songs and edgy musical experiments — all are part of the Jewish musical diaspora and are found at festivals, in synagogues and in concert halls. Works by Schoenberg, Posner, and Milhaud, living composers Van Brink, Harrington, Parker, and Avni, this year’s Composer-in-Residence Michael Kaulkin, and one of the premiere arrangers of Yiddish and Sephardic folk music, and this year’s Composer-Not-in-Residence, Sylke Zimpel.
**Please note the venue change for March 18. Due to the new location on Stanford campus, the March 18 performance is now free to the public!
