Visiting Artists Series: Tartan, Baroque & Klezmer, featuring FleytMuzik

Monday, March 7, 2016 - 8:00pm
Tuesday, March 8, 2016 - 2:00pm
Walker Recital Hall

The six musicians of FleytMuzik, led by traditional klezmer flutist Adrianne Greenbaum, will take you on a curious odyssey through the experience of the Jewish itinerant musician, the klezmer. A "professional” since the 16th century, the klezmer adopted and stole tunes wherever gypsies and society musicians co-existed. Unexpected influences and dialogue abound with cross-weavings of cultures from Slovakia, Scotland, the Ottoman Empire, Italy, Germany, Hungary and Eastern Europe. The program is described as “Interwoven fabrics of Jewish itinerant musicians, from Slovakia to Scotland and beyond.” Both the Monday performance and the Tuesday masterclass are free and open to the public as part of the Terry & Margaret M. Roche Visiting Artists Series. For more information, contact Dr. Albert Glinsky, aglinsky@mercyhurst.edu.
