Shirim Klezmer Orchestra is simply one of the most compelling klezmer concert bands around. They have performed with the Philly Pops, with Maurice Sendak narrating their collaboration of "Pincus & the Pig" and on concert stages across North America and Europe.  Masters of the traditional Eastern European Jewish folk idiom, the band has also created zany but thoroughly convincing extensions to the repertoire- a "Klezmer Nutcracker" twists new meaning out of the holiday favorite, "Maurice Sendak's Pincus," a klezmer version of "Peter & the Wolf," and a large repertoire of traditional tunes which will knock your socks off.  Check out their concert video here.
