Temple Israel Alameda Chamber
Brotman & Horowitz
Temple Israel Alameda Chamber music Concerts
continues on November 13, 2002 with Stuart Brotman and Joshua
Horowitz playing “The Klezmer Music of a Traditional Shtetl
Wedding.” The concert begins at 8:00 p.m. and is the second in
the Temple’s Wednesday Chamber Concert Series. The musical
selections are derived from forgotten music of the East European
traditional wedding music as it sounded on a wedding day, played
on a Tsimbl (hammer dulcimer) and button accordion. This
mesmerizing performance has won over audiences worldwide. Brotman
and Horowitz are recognized as two of the seminal figures in the
Klezmer revival, and this concert is a once-only event.
The audience will be transported through the music to a
traditional East European wedding. They will hear music for the
escorting of the family to the veiling of the bride, the march of
the families from the ceremony to the banquet, the greeting of the
guests, the ritual dance of the bride, and a lusty dance to move
the guests home.
Tickets for this and other concerts in this
series are available for $15 adults, $12 seniors over 62 and
students under 16. A full subscription for all three concerts is
available at $40 adults and $30 for seniors and students.
The remaining concerts include the December 11,
2002 “Brazzisimo” ensemble, an
11 piece brass choir, and the January 8, 2002 Piano Trios with
Alan Geier, piano, Terrie Baune, violin, and Priscilla Taylor on
