Community Klezmer Jam with Longfellow Village Band
The Longfellow Village Band is a community band and learning jam highlighting Yiddish and Klezmer music and dance. Founded in 2019, the group brings together participants of all backgrounds and musical experience to play, sing, clap, dance, schmooze, and otherwise learn and enjoy Jewish cultural space together.
What is a Learning Jam?
– Everyone attends as a learner, interested in hearing and being part of Yiddish & Klezmer music. There are no experts, and no experience necessary.
– People come to play, sing, listen, schmooze, and everything in between. If you’re not an instrumentalist, you can sing. If you are learning a new instrument, you can bring it. If you want to come just hang out, meet people, read a book, eat snacks – do that.
– Bring your learning brain and assume the best of everyone.
Snacks provided, free to the public.
For the safety and security of our members, guests and staff, you must present a government-issued ID to gain access to the Minnesota JCC campuses. Thank you for your cooperation.
