30 years Klezmerfestival in Fürth – its traditions, innovations and diversity will also be celebrated in this year's workshop - a festival tradition that has grown over the years. Our music workshop offers a great opportunity to learn from the world's top Klezmorim. Various aspects of Jewish music will be presented in the classes and ensembles. Everyone who knows how to play an instrument is encouraged to participate. And what would music be without dancing? We are really looking forward to the concluding concert on March 11th, when participants of music and dance workshops will meet and party together.
