Deborah Strauss and Jeff Warschauer are two of the most beloved performers
and teachers in the international klezmer and Yiddish music scene. They were
both long-time members of the Klezmer Conservatory Band, and have performed
with violinist Itzhak Perlman on film and in concert. As the Strauss/Warschauer
Duo, they have performed to overwhelming acclaim in such diverse venues as
the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Jewish Culture Festival in Cracow, the
Folksbiene Yiddish Theater in New York City, and the Art of Yiddish in Los
Angeles with Theodore Bikel. They lead workshops and classes throughout North
America and Europe, are on the faculty of KlezKamp, KlezKanada and KlezFest at
the University of London, and are curators of the Columbia University Series on
Klezmer Music & Yiddish Song.
