Sunday, October 29: LAJS Chamber Players, Boston Court (Pasadena)

The Los Angeles Jewish Symphony Chamber Players will present Klassics to Klezmer at the Boston Court Performing Arts Center in Pasadena, CA.  This exciting evening of music will take place on Sunday, October 29, 2017 at 7:00PM.

From the streets of the shtetl to the concert stage, Klassics to Klezmer showcases the full range of the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony’s mission.

As Dr. Noreen Green casts her baton over an extraordinary chamber group of the LAJS’s principal players, we challenge you to stay seated during the rousing Klezmer numbers and to keep a dry eye when you hear melodies that will pull at your heartstrings.

Enjoy the traditional Klezmer music against a backdrop of classical composers who, like Bartok or Dvořák, borrowed folk idioms as inspiration for their compositions. Music by Prokofiev, Glick, Clearfield, Chajes and more!
