The Klezmatics to play in Cornell Concert Series April 13

The Klezmatics, world-renowned klezmer performers from New York City’s East Village, are coming to the Cornell Concert Series. Their concert takes place Sat., April 13 at 7:30 pm in Bailey Hall.  

The Klezmatics’ music is steeped in Eastern European Jewish tradition and spirituality, while also incorporating contemporary themes such as human rights and antifundamentalism, and eclectic musical influences — from jazz and punk to Arab, African, Latin and Balkan rhythms. Over the course of thirty years, they have released nine albums of both spiritual and ecstatically danceable music, forever redefining and transcending traditional labels. In the process, they have garnered numerous accolades, including a GRAMMY Award, a New York Jewish Music Award, a Gay and Lesbian American Music Award, and the German Critics Award (twice), in addition to being featured in theater, film, and television projects.  

Artist and program information, subscriptions, single tickets, and student memberships are available through the CCS website.  

Free evening parking is available at the Forest Home Garage at 37 Forest Home Dr. More information and campus maps can be found on the Cornell transportation and CCS websites

CCS ticket holders can show their tickets to ride TCAT buses for no charge from Ithaca Commons and Ithaca College. More details and route information is available online. 

The Cornell Concert Series has been hosting musicians and ensembles of international stature since 1903. Originally featuring Western classical artists, the series presented Ravi Shankar in 1987 and has since grown to encompass a broader spectrum of the world's great music.
