Shirim is performing its Klezmer Nutcracker Holiday Concert at Club Passim in Harvard Square on Sunday, Dec. 4, 3:00pm! Club Passim is at 47 Palmer St., the Ticketing Phone is 617-492-7679. The Klezmer Nutcracker is our take on Tchaikovsky's Hanukah ballet suite, and we will also perform some other holiday classics, like our "Search for the Golden Dreydl," which probably the greatest dreydl tune ever. Don't miss it! Tickets on line at: http://www.clubpassim.org/club/shirim-klezmer-nutcracker-2
Debuting with the band is vocalist Anneke Reich, performing in Yiddish, along with our normal crew Glenn Dickson, clarinet; Michael McLaughlin, piano and accordion; Jim Gray, tuba; Eric Rosenthal; and guest Clayton DeWalt on trombone.
For you holiday shopping pleasure, most of our CDs are available at CD Baby including the Klezmer Nutcracker, Pincus and the Pig (with Maurice Sendak), Mayse, Naftule's Dream. Our first CD, "Of Angels and Horseradish," has recently been reprinted with its original packaging and is available there for the first time in quite a while.
If you have friends in or around Milford, PA, we will be performing the same concert there on Dec. 10!
Hope to see you soon, Glenn
