Yiddish, the 1000-year-old language of the Jews of Eastern Europe, is flourishing, as people young and old, Jewish and non-Jewish, explore its rich cultural heritage. Yiddish songs are hugely varied: spiritual and liturgical, theatre and cinema songs, folklore of the diverse lives of Jewish people across Eastern and Central Europe and all the countries they have emigrated to – their history, hopes, memories, politics, celebrations and resistance to oppression. The choir (LYC) explores all these traditions and builds on them, while respecting and learning about the history, style and cultural contexts in which the music originated and developed.
Join us for a taster session in September!
