Boston breeds great Yiddish folk singers – after all, New England Conservatory is the only music school in the US where students can take a class on performing Yiddish folk music!
Join a new generation of Boston-based Yiddish singers keeping the tradition alive and fresh – Adah Hetko, Kirsten Lamb, Eden MacAdam-Somer and Abigale Reisman – and hear from them what it means to be part of this beautiful tradition. Hankus Netsky, founder of the Klezmer conservatory band, and Rukhl Schaechter, editor of the Yiddish Forverts, will lead a conversation with these four women and learn how they see their work in the context of Yiddish culture today.
This talk is in partnership with JArts Boston and part of the Dr. Thomas Zand Forward Event Series.
