Love klezmer? Sing Yiddish!

Love Klezmer music and want to try something new? Yiddish songs are the vocal side of the same culture as the more known Klezmer music. Join the London Yiddish choir for 3 rehearsals and a performance: Rehearsals 17 November, 1 and 8 December in Central London (near Warren St tube), concert on 11 December.
Open to all backgrounds and singing levels, no knowledge of languages is requited. Reading music is not essential.

The repertoire varies from wordless songs with freedom to sing by ear and improvise, use some ornaments specific to the style to 4 part SATB arrangements of folk and modern Yiddish and Russian (!) songs.
