Trampled Manuscripts: The Lost Klezmer Music of the An-sky Expeditions Concert – October 21st at 2pmPosted on
Trampled Manuscripts: The Lost Klezmer Music of the An-sky Expeditions concert connects audiences to a treasure trove of newly-available Ukrainian Jewish music from 100 years ago. Led by the Klezmer Institute’s Executive Director Christina Crowder, this special concert will premier selections from newly-available tunes being digitized through the Institute’s international community-driven digital humanities project the Kiselgof-Makonovetsky Digital Manuscript Project. The program will introduce you to some of the wonderful characters we encounter in these tattered pages. We will tell their stories through the music they wrote down for themselves, and then passed on to the high-falutin’ strangers from St. Petersburg who came to their shtetl one day in the summer of 1913.
This program is made possible by a grant from the Friends of the C.H. Booth Library.
This event is part of our Stories of Exile program series. For more information on this event, and other in the series, visit the Stories of Exile Exhibit page on our website or our gallery on the third floor!
