The Klezmatics

They’re the Grammy®-winning superstars of klezmer, and they’re coming to Orchestra Hall!

Descended from the centuries-old Jewish cantillation of the Middle East, klezmer music began in the Yiddish-speaking world of Eastern Europe, where it became a fixture in Jewish culture—and is very much alive today thanks to masters like the Klezmatics. This seriously entertaining ensemble from New York City is dedicated to keeping klezmer music vital and spreading its infectious, expressive, danceable sound around the globe.

“The Klezmatics aren’t just the best band in the klezmer vanguard; on a good night, they can rank among the greatest bands on the planet.”
