2012 Art and Change Grant – $2,010

Susan will produce a monthly gathering of instrumentalists, dancers, and vocalists learning the basics of klezmer music, dance and song in order to create new klezmer dances and songs and performing them for the community.  She will work with a community of people interested in making culture in a new way.  Yiddish has been called a dead language and new generations have few ways of connecting to a rich tradition that shows how Jews lived and celebrated. Because there is not a current venue for families to come together and develop their own connections to the klezmer culture, which Susan  grew up in, she would like to provide a place that uses learning, performing, and community participation as a means to that end.
