“From Shtetl to Swing”

Friday, Mar 15, 2013 5:15p
Boedecker Theater Boulder, CO

From 1880 and 1924, 2.5 million Jews kissed the shtetl goodbye and headed for the land of freedom and opportunity, bringing the sounds of their homelands with them. Once here, they quickly influenced American culture, from klezmer and Yiddish Theater to the inventions of ragtime, symphonic jazz and swing. These Jewish musicians merged the wail of the cantor and the clarinet into new musical idioms. A perfect companion film for “Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy.”
