Join Us for Alicia-Fest

On August 24, the Forward and the Sixth Street Synagogue will present three accomplished Jewish artists — all named Alicia — whose work extends across generations and genres. The event, called “3 Alicias 3,” will feature:

Alicia Svigals
Svigals is a virtuosic klezmer fiddler, who was a founder of the Klezmatics and the band Mikveh. Svigals is a native New Yorker, who studied with the legendary Leon Schwartz. She has been called “the greatest living exponent of the klezmer fiddle.”

• Alicia Ostriker
Ostriker is a poet and critic. She has been nominated for two National Book Awards and won the 2009 Jewish Book Award for poetry. She’s taught creative writing and poetry at universities and workshops in the United States, Israel, England and Australia.

• Alicia Jo Rabins
Rabins is a fiddler who plays with the bands Golem and Girls in Trouble. Her art-pop melodies focus on women in the Torah.

The three will first perform individually and then present a collaborative work, followed by a panel discussion.

The cover charge is $8, but the first 10 Sisterhood readers to request tickets will get in free. To request free tickets, email Gabi Birkner at [email protected]
