Maxwell Street Klezmer Quintet in Concert

Event Type: Adult Services
Date: 4/13/2017
Start Time: 7:00 PM
Description:
 The Maxwell Street Klezmer Quintet performs a concert led by founder Lori Lippitz, who created the band to bring back to life the lost art and culture of the community that was destroyed in the Holocaust. The band was named in tribute to the spirit of Chicago's early immigrants, whose music uniquely blended folk songs from their eastern European roots with early American jazz and swing. This event is part of the One Book, Everybody Reads series. Funding provided by Friends of the Library. (This year's book - Mischling by Affinity Konar.)
