Klezmerpalooza 2019 
Start Date/Time: Saturday, March 9, 2019 8:00 PM 
End Date/Time: Sunday, March 10, 2019 5:00 PM
Category: Concerts/Performances

 What's better than a free concert, workshops, and a dance party with some of the best klezmer musicians in the country?

Klezmerpalooza is the college klezmer festival. This year is the 10th iteration of the festival, the 20th anniversary of the first Klezmerpalooza, and the 40th anniversary of the first klezmer jam sessions at NEC, which led to the birth of the Klezmer Conservatory Band and ushered in the klezmer revival in Boston. We have a lot to celebrate!

The festival consists of three basic parts: an opening concert featuring an all-star group of professional klezmer musicians on Saturday, March 9th, a series of workshops in the morning and afternoon of March 10th, and a dance party featuring the student bands in the evening of March 10th.

All events are free and open to the public at New England Conservatory's Burns Hall, 255 St. Botolph Street, Boston, MA.

The musicians for the Saturday night concert as follows:
Hankus Netsky
Michael Winograd
Rachel Lemisch
Judith Berkson
Ezekiel's Wheels Klezmer Band - Abigail Reisman, Jonathan Cannon, Kirsten Lamb, Nat Seelen, Pete Fanelli
Zach Mayer
The NEC Jewish Music Ensemble

On Sunday, founding Klezmer Conservatory Band member and well-known klezmer musician and cantor Jeff Warschauer will join as a workshop leader.

Admission is free but registration is requested at
