Klezmer Fusion at Wes Friday and Saturday
Clarinetist David Krakauer takes the stage at Crowell Concert Hall on the Wesleyan campus tomorrow evening to present a concert which will range from a set of solo classical pieces to a full-band performance with Klezmer Madness!
Krakauer is a licorice-stick virtuoso who is comfortable playing in a wide-ranging and diverse set of styles including classical chamber music, Eastern European Jewish klezmer music and avant-garde improvisation.
A klezmer jam takes place at the World Music Hall on the Wesleyan campus at 7 pm Friday, admission free. On Saturday, a ticketed concert begins at 8 pm and tickets are available through the Wesleyan Box Office. The Saturday concert will be preceded at 7:15 by a pre-concert talk with Wesleyan Professor of Music, Mark Slobin
