    Klezmer Nutcracker Holiday Concert

    Celebrate Chanukah and Christmas all at once! Bring the kids, bring your grandmother! Be ready to move. This is music for the soul. Shirim’s legendary klezmer rendition of the Nutcracker is a brilliant cross-cultural achievement which is fun, serious and rocking all at once. They distill the classic ballet suite down to its folky essence and will change the way you think of Tchaikovsky forever. Emphasizing the Eastern European elements of the score with witty intelligence and playful irreverence, Shirim redefines the modern melting pot of "world music." Its overwhelming virtuosity in both the performance and musical conception harken back to the manic genius of Spike Jones' classical parodies and the artistry of Ellington's classic transcription.
