The David Glukh Klezmer Ensemble performs at “Klezmer at the Shore.” Featuring Glukh on piccolo and trumpet, Ronn Yedidia on accordion and Dan Auerbach on violin, the ensemble’s members are all Juilliard graduates.

“We’re going to play traditional, Jewish and klezmer music from Ukraine, Poland, Hungary… pretty much every country in Eastern Europe,” Glukh said about the show. The Russian-born Glukh performed in more than 70 concerts with Dallas Brass before leaving the group in 2002. Yedidia, who won his first music prize at age 8 in Israel, has composed a number of works that have been broadcast on American radio and TV stations. The Israeli-born Auerbach is currently chair of the strings and ensembles department at the Calderone School of Music. As a soloist, he has appeared in major venues in New York City, and as a chamber musician, he has collaborated with many ensembles. The trio recently released a CD, “Live From New York.”
