Klezmer Nutcracker Holiday Concert
Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia
Fairfax, VA
Share this event:

This is the ultimate holiday concert: a klezmerized version of Tchaikovsky's perennial classic which will delight the whole family. Shirim Klezmer Orchestra's "Nutcracker" will make klezmer aficionados plotz and Tchaikovsky fans drop their jaws with wonder. It combines the zany wit of Spike Jones with the class and craft of Duke Ellington and recasts the Nutcracker as a Hannukah classic with images of a dancing Latkes Queen and marching Maccabees.

Shirim Klezmer Orchestra will also perform a concert of "Pincus & the Pig" on Sunday morning, November 24.

"You have to hear Shirim's delightful interpretation to know what a brilliant combination klezmer and Tchaikovsky make." - National Public Radio (Performance Today)

"Shirim's "Klezmer Nutcracker" sounds utterly natural and totally compelling. Klezmer devotees will rejoice at the fresh stock of great tunes, and classical fans so far immune to the Russian composer's populist favorite should find themselves swooningShirim's genre-crossing conception is a delight and its playing a joy."  Billboard Magazine (Critics Choice)
