Free Klezmer Duos
Spontaneous Musical Encounters
Aug 1 – 5, 11 p.m. @OMA
With Nicolaas Cottenie & various artists of the Festival Week

Have you ever wondered how musicians play together when they're not on stage in front of an audience? Free Klezmer Duos, a project invented by Yiddish Summer Director Alan Bern, gives you the chance to "be backstage" and find out. The insider hit of the previous years of Yiddish Summer, Free Klezmer Duos is a late-night session at the OMAcafé, nightly from August 1-5. It's a platform for musical encounters among the musicians who play concerts in the Festival Week.

There are only two rules:
1) There must always be two and only two musicians playing an improvised, unrehearsed duet, and
2) Break rule 1 if necessary. After that, anything can happen.

Be there!
