The centuries old musical tradition of the klezmorim, professional Jewish instrumentalists of Eastern Europe, was brought to the states by immigrants at the turn of the last century, and Americanized under the influence of jazz and modern orchestration. The University of Virginia Klezmer Ensemble celebrates the music’s multi-cultural revival and honors its roots in medieval minstrelsy and Jewish ritual. Director and clarinetist Joel Rubin, UVA’s renowned ethnomusicologist, is joined by Alan Bern, an accordion-playing Berliner who Rubin started a revival group with in the ’80s, setting the stage for klezmer kismet.

Thursday 3/27. $5-10, 8pm. Old Cabell Hall, UVA. 924-3376.
