Set in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains on the lush 300+ acre
campus of Albuquerque Academy, this weeklong workshop features
Veretski Pass, including tsimbalist and accordianist Josh Horowitz,
fiddler Cookie Segelstein, and Stu Brotman on bass. This year we are
offering optional afternoon classes including 2 sessions of Yiddish
dance, a lecture and slide show on 18th and 19th C. Yiddish life,
and a film screening and discussion. You can also hike on our
private wilderness tract and on the many acres of public land
nearby. Or you may want to explore the cultural resources of the
Albuquerque/Santa Fe area. More info….
This class is open to anyone who can play simple tunes on their
instrument. You do not have to read music or be familiar with Klezmer style. We encourage both solo players and existing ensembles to participate. Class will run daily from 9 AM until noon with optional afternoon programs as describged above. $210.
The week will conclude with a student concert, and a concert by Cookie, Josh and Stu on Friday evening.
This weeklong workshop could be a great start or end to a southwestern summer vacation or a vacation unto itself.
