2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Susan will produce a free klezmer concert that highlights klezmer music, or Eastern European Jewish folk music, by women composers who are not celebrated in the male-dominated genre. Susan will expand the scope of her volunteer community band to include more instruments, more musicians, an expanded repertoire, and increased frequency of rehearsals. The concert will showcase women who are composing vocal and instrumental pieces that speak to their sensibilities and push the form stylistically and technically.
