Bridges To Cultures: Macaronic Songs and The Neighbors' Culture
We are excited to invite you to a workshop with D. Zisl Slepovitch! Zisl is a musicologist (PhD), a classical, klezmer, and improvising musician, and the founding member of the critically acclaimed band Litvakus.

In this workshop, D. Zisl Slepovitch will teach a set of songs that derive from Eastern European Slavic and Jewish traditions. The songs will be split into two different groups that show cultural diffusion in different ways. One group will include macaronic or multilingual songs and the other will include songs that reflect upon the unusual cultural practices of high contact cultures and how they affect one another.  

Come sing with us and bring your friends!

15$ adults | 10$ students & seniors | children free

Playwrights Rehearsal Studios -  Room 4A, 440 Lafayette St, New York, NY 10003
