Alicia Svigal: It Would have Been Enough, But it Wasn’t. Now there’s More in April at John Zorn’s Stone place

At the Stone in NYC, 2nd St. and Ave C, www.thestonenyc.com
Violinist Alicia Svigals, a founder of the Grammy-winning Klezmatics
and the world’s best-known klezmer fiddler, is the curator for the
month of April at the Stone, John Zorn’s performance space on the
Lower East Side of Manhattan.

John Zorn, the composer who was recently awarded a MacArthur genius
grant, opened the Stone to provide a venue for the most creative new
music in New York. Each month he selects a different musician to
curate the series, and for April he asked Svigals to put together a
lineup that would tap into her eclectic and offbeat musical worlds.

The fifty acts Svigals booked revolve around three themes: Jewish
music, virtuoso female instrumentalist/improvisers/composers, and
all kinds of string music, traditional and contemporary.…

My Online Course! Music of the Jewish People

New this fall from Hebrew College:
Online courses from the School of Jewish Music

I’m teaching an online course in Jewish music through Hebrew College of Boston. It’s called “Music of the Jewish People.” You won’t have to be able to read music, although of course, that always helps! However, it’s not actually required for taking this course. It’s all online, and there’s no particular “class time.” You “attend” the course completely online, get your resources and discussion online. The course is a college-level course and is intended for individuals who have completed high school and above.

You have to register and pay for the course registration through the Hebrew College.
After September 4th, there is a late registration fee, so register right away!
Anyone interested in taking your course should be directed to the Registrar (Marilyn Jaye – mjaye@hebrewcollege.edu or 617-559-8642).…

Music of the Jewish People Online Course

There’s still room and time to sign up! The “Music of the Jewish People,” a full semester, tremendously fun online course at the college level is being offered by Hebrew College. I’m teaching this course for HC, and looking forward to a variety of participants, from college students and up, from anywhere in the US or abroad. I understand that there is still time to sign up to get credits (better hurry and not forget to sign upafter Rosh Hashanah!)

You can also take the course as a “non-credit” course and many people not needing the course for a degree may choose that route. Either way, for credit or non-credit, I’m expecting it to be exciting.

Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz has been a mainstay of the downtown scene for over
a decade now, working with and producing CDs by Daniel Zamir, Cyro
Baptista, Eyal Maoz, Jon Madof, Yoshie Fruchter and more. Here he steps out
on his own to make one of the most tribal and primal installments in the

intense guitar pyrotechnics of Eyal Maoz (Edom, 9 Volt with Time Berne,
Hypercolor) and Aram Bajakian (who recently has been tearing it up in Lou
Reed’s new band) and the atavistic drumming of Kenny Grohowski, this is
Ritualistic Jewish Rock for the 21st century from a brilliant young lion
from the East Village via Brooklyn/Israel!…
