Jewish Music Series Band Veretski Pass

Days Of Awe: Veretski Pass with Shofar

Professor Brian S. Wilson will begin this concert with a Shofar demonstration in celebration of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year.  

In addition, violinist Cookie Segelstein will play the traditional Kol Nidre melody which is used to usher in Yom Kippur. 

Veretski Pass has been a leading ensemble of the Klezmer Revival for almost two decades, with a repertoire ranging from the deeply traditional to the avant-garde. This concert will highlight their improvisatory skills with a potpourri of Ottoman and Carpathian suites utilizing pieces from their field and archival work. Veretski Pass' concert programs continue to surprise and delight audiences across the globe, with collages of styles that integrate Jewish melodies from Poland and Rumania with Hutzul wedding music from Ruthenia and haunting Rembetica aires from Smyrna, joined together with their own original compositions. Their CDs have repeatedly been on the 10-best recording lists of journalists since 2002. Their concerts are humorous and exciting with unexpected moments of powerful emotion.
