Sunday Sounds: Ed Goldberg and The Odessa Klezmer Band
May 5, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Who could have predicted that a Yiddish writer’s tales of an impoverished Jewish milkman in czarist Russia, reborn as a smash Broadway hit, would become a cultural touchstone of lasting popularity and global recognition into the 21st century?
As we honor Jewish American Heritage Month, Scotch Plains Public Library’s May programs will examine the phenomenon of Fiddler on the Roof from a variety of vantage points.
Ed Goldberg and the Odessa Klezmer Band – Eastern European Klezmer musicians traveled from town to town to entertain on special occasions. Join in the festivities as the band celebrates Cinco de Mayo in classic klezmer style.
No registration is necessary.
Plan to join us for these other ‘Fiddler’ programs:
- Sholem Aleichem: Laughing the Darkness (Film) – Thursday, May 2 at 7pm
- Sholem Aleichem: Historian John Kenrick – Thursday, May 16 at 7pm
- Fiddler Sing-along with Tim White – Sunday, May 19 at 12:30pm.
