Schwartz/Reisman Centre, 9600 Bathurst St, Vaughan, ON
Ashkenaz is pleased to present an evening of live klezmer music, dancing and refreshments at Schwartz/Reisman Centre, featuring Montreal’s Ichka.
The event is co-presented with SRC’s J Singles program for those 50 and older.
Ichka is one of the freshest new additions to the Canadian Klezmer music scene. The group presents a panorama of older klezmer styles, gleaned mostly from archival recordings and historic manuscripts, and rendered with passion and authenticity. In an era of increasing experimentation and fusion across the klezmer genre, Ichka are a proud bastion of tradition, animated with youthful energy, fresh perspective and unbridled joy.
