A Yiddishe Khanike: Music at Noon Lunch and Concert
Enjoy Yiddish songs and Klezmer dance music ranging from Bessarabia to Brooklyn. We will bring back Yiddish singer Jeanette Lewicki with her eclectic repertoire of rarely-heard songs and stories, joined by virtuoso clarinetist Sheldon Brown and rock-solid bassist Richard Saunders. They have been playing together for over twenty years and still have fun! Lewicki has pursued Yiddish song and klezmer music around the world. She has produced numerous CDs and took part in the YIVO NY project to digitize the complete Ruth Rubin collection, which involved listening to more than 900 unaccompanied Yiddish songs sung by native speakers. Composer and woodwind multi-instrumentalist Sheldon Brown has been involved in the San Francisco Bay Area creative music scene for over 20 years. Since 1994, he has led the Sheldon Brown Group, which performs his own compositions. Richard Saunders has played and recorded with Country Joe and the Fish and others, as well as for various TV shows and ads and movie scores. He is on the faculty of the San Francisco Community Music Center. Monthly Music at Noon concerts include a delicious hot buffet lunch before the concert. Need a ride?
