History of Klezmer Music in NYC
Museum at Eldridge Street (12 Eldridge St., Manhattan)

Free, RSVP requested (hgriff@eldridgestreet.org)

We are pleased to host Dr. Hankus Netsky, one of the pioneers of the international revival of klezmer music. A founder of the Klezmer Conservatory Band and a noted Jewish music scholar, Netsky will present a free lecture with accompanying musical samples about the history of klezmer music in New York City. The talk will focus on his field research with the Levitt family, a klezmer dynasty stretching back at least four generations.
