Heather Klein Sings Yiddish Art Songs
Heather Klein has charmed audiences throughout the United States, Canada and Europe with her beguiling stage presence and versatile soprano voice. Ms. Klein comes to the Jewish Music Festival hot off the release of her first album, Mayn Yiddishe Velt, a compilation of theater music from the late1800s and early 1900s. In performance and on record, Heather celebrates the music brought to the Lower East Side of New York by immigrants as well as the innovative work written in the United States at that time for theater and concert halls including art songs, folk, and opera.
Heather received her Masters degree from the San Francisco Conservatory and has vaulted onto the local Yiddish song scene. She is a Jewish Music Festival veteran and has performed for Bible by the Bay, Caf by the Bay, the San Francisco JCC and with the Red Hot Chachkas. Most recently, Heather had her debut with National Yiddish Folksbine alongside City Operas Robert Abelson and Claire Barry of the Barry Sisters. Last winter saw Heather in the role of Rivka Shmuel in the national tour of Meshuga Nutcracker with the National Jewish Theater Festival and this past summer she enchanted French audiences in the final cabaret performance for Medems Yiddish Festival in Paris. As her international reputation grows, the Jewish Music Festival is proud to present Heather Klein accompanied by piano and clarinet in our newly refurbished theater.
