“A Klezmer Journey” with Viva Klezmer! (75 min)
Charlotte based ensemble Viva Klezmer! will trace the evolution of klezmer music from its first
appearance in the United states in the early 1900’s to the present day. This concert examines
the influence American popular music and klezmer music have had on each other. The ensemble
consists of four instrumentalists; clarinetist, Gene Kavadlo; violinist, Ali Kavadlo; guitarist, Mike
Mosley; and bassist, Ron Brendle. Together, they bring an impressive background to their
Klezmer interpretations. This program promises to be lively and entertaining for all.
