Yiddishe Cup to Perform at Mount Union March 19
April 01, 2010
Guest artists Yiddishe Cup will perform at Mount Union College on Monday, March 19 at 8 p.m. in the Mount Union Theater.
As one of the Top 10 klezmer bands in America today, Yiddishe Cup was formed in 1988. Klezmer, which means 'village musician' in Yiddish, is a hybrid of Eastern European Jewish fold music, American swing, Yiddish theater tunes and Israeli horas. The Evening Post of Wellington, New Zealand called it a 'delicious concoction that sounds like jazz but with 11 secret herbs and spices added.'
Not all Klezmer bands are alike. Yiddishe Cup adds many extras to their show. They are funny, spirited, use a klezmer dance and they mix up their show. The band consists of Bert Stratton, Irwin Weinberger, Steve Ostrow, Alan Douglass, Don Friedman and Daniel Ducoff.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the Mount Union College Department of Music at (330) 823-2180.
