Youth Klezmer Band
Jul 29 – Aug 3
10 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

For ages 10 – 16

With Georg Brinkmann

There's nothing more fun than playing in a klezmer band! Here's your chance!

Klezmer is Jewish music from Eastern Europe that is mostly played on happy occasions – sometimes for dancing, sometimes for listening.

In a klezmer band, each player does their own thing but is also part of a team.
We'll start with some great melodies, harmonies and rhythms, and take it from there...

The Youth Klezmer Band is led by clarinetist and vocalist Georg Brinkmann, who has travelled around the globe – from Australia to New York – teaching and performing Yiddish music.

So, if you're between 10 and 16 years old, play an instrument and are ready to dive into a new musical world, the Youth Klezmer Band is for you.

If you're slightly younger or older but would like to join anyway, please contact Georg Brinkmann at .

Workshop fee: 90 €.
We regret that we can't neither offer the early bird discount nor the discount for Other Music Academy e.V. members for this workshop.

The evening program that caps each workshop day has much to do with the unique atmosphere of Yiddish Summer Weimar. On some evenings we meet for jam sessions in Weimar's cafés or in the Other Music Academy (OMA), a great opportunity to put into practice what you've been learning during the day and connect with the other participants. On other evenings, we present concerts connected to the workshop topic performed by internationally recognized artists. During the Festival Week (July 27 - August 3), directly following each evening's featured event in the mon ami cultural center, we meet again in the OMA for the Late Night Cabaret, an informal and fun atmosphere for short performances by anyone ready to jump on stage. In Yiddish Summer Weimar, learning, playing and connecting with each other go hand-in-hand.
