Alicia Svigals & Ensemble: 
Long Lost Musical Treasures Of Jewish Ukraine – “Beregovski Suite”
Saturday, December 14 – 7:30 PM

From Pam Hanzel: I hope all of you are going to attend the concert in our synagogue on Saturday, December 14, at 7:30 PM. It is going to be fantastic!

In the 1930’s, a Jewish scholar from the Ukraine, named Moshe Beregovski, set out to collect and preserve the rich Jewish musical tradition around him. He traveled to Ukrainian “shtetlekh” (small Jewish towns) and asked musicians to pour their collective folk knowledge into his recording horn. He managed to save thousands of beautiful Jewish folk songs, klezmer dance tunes and religious melodies on wax cylinders. The culture he documented was destroyed in the Holocaust. The cylinders were unearthed in a dusty office in Kiev in the 90’s.


Violinist Alicia Svigals, Grammy winner, pianist Uli Geissendoerfer, Grammy nominated, and accordionist Bill Schimmel, Grammy nominated, perform the melodies rescued by Beregovski and re-contextualize them for the 21st century.
