American violinist and composer Yale Strom is a pioneer among klezmer revivalists. For this concert, he is joined by contralto Elizabeth Schwartz and two Israeli multi-talents: contrabass player Omer Govreen and singer/keyboardist Gilad Nezer. Omer studied jazz and contemporary music in Ramat HaSharon and Amsterdam and is a specialist in improvised music. As cantor of the Amsterdam’s reform (‘liberaal’) Jewish community, Gilad’s goal is to bring people together. A perfect quartet for our series Music Connects!
