Music for the soul! Internationally renowned Shirim Klezmer Orchestra kicks it up in a rare local appearance with their own take on this incredible music from Eastern European Jewish villages (shtels). Wild Russian dances, wailing Romanian laments give in to Yiddish swing and jazzy American Klezmer excursions. Bring the kids, bring your grandmother! Shirim has performed all over the U.S., Canada and Europe. They have collaborated with Maurice Sendak (Pincus & the Pig), Ellen Kushner (The Golden Dreydl), played with the Philly Pops and on a Woody Allen movie soundtrack (Deconstructing Harry). They are traditional and new and alive at the same time. Come see them, you won’t regret it in this intimate venue. After over 25 years of playing, Shirim is a Boston institution.
