Noon-2:00pm: LUNCH ‘N LEARN

Lunch Reservation DEADLINE THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2017 -- Lecture only is a $5 minimum donation

Enjoy a delicious catered & homemade ‘milkhik’ lunch (NO meat / YES: fish, eggs, dairy & lots of veggie foods) to the music of Albuquerque's own Watermelon Klezmer Band: Di Kavenye Kapelye.

Then Clara will present “Mixing in Too Much Jewish: American Klezmer Musicians of the 1950's to 1970's” 

Clara NewHeadshotBWClara describes it thus: Building on Kirshenblatt-Gimblett’s call for a greater understanding of music from the 1950s to 1970s, I demonstrate that the second generation American klezmorim maintained the traditional characteristics from their predecessors and foreshadowed the creative innovations of klezmer music in the revitalization. The klezmorim from the 1950s-1970s did not merely preserve a waning tradition, they primed the scene for the changes to follow through the continued development of the bulgar genre, incorporation of popular American dance styles, shifting instrumentation of ensembles, more rapidly changing and complex harmonic progressions, and increased use of chromaticism and the major scale. 

Using examples from the repertoire of Sam and Ray Musiker, Sidney Beckerman, and Marty Levitt, I frame musical developments in klezmer music throughout the twentieth century as evidence of the increasing fluidity of Jewish-American identity and the music of the second-generation of klezmorim as a critical and too-often neglected part of the American klezmer tradition.
