We’re pleased to team up with our friends in Montreal and New York to present a tri-city, in-person and live-streamed closing event for this summer’s virtual KlezKanada Retreat. The event can be viewed online on Facebook or this Vimeo link: https://vimeo.com/590138282/58307812ae
The evening will consist of the following:
