In February 1980, when the Klezmer Conservatory Band gave its first concert in Brown Hall at Bostons New England Conservatory, it would have been impossible to imagine the path the bands career would take. Forty years later, the KCB can look back on thirteen widely acclaimed CDs (ten under their own name), thirteen appearances on Prairie Home Companion, multiple international tours, TV broadcasts and performances as guest artists with top symphony orchestras, and major collaborative projects where they have teamed up with Robin Williams, Joel Grey, Robert Brustein and, for the past 23 years, Itzhak Perlman. In this multimedia lecture, Hankus Netsky, the band's founder and director, will share the remarkable story of the most enduring ensemble to come out of the klezmer resurgence.|
