The Parlor Room School of Music Presents:
Renegade Klezmer Workshop
at The Parlor Room
Sunday, November 12th
11 am - 1 pm
TIX: $30 GA / $20 MEMBER

Klezmer isn’t just a collection of songs, scales and ornaments, but rather, a transcendent approach to music and life in general.

In this two-hour workshop for musicians of all levels, Jason will discuss his approach to klezmer and “jewish music”. We’ll learn a few songs together and explore different approaches to the music, with an emphasis on improvisation, self-expression, and spirituality.

Clarinetist, Jason Ditzian has been leading Bay Area-based klezmer ensemble, Kugelplex since 2003 and Western Mass-based klezmer ensemble Myrtle Street Klezmer since 2022. Both groups take an expansive, non-traditional approach to “old-world soul” music from across the Jewish diaspora. As a working klezmer, Jason has planned and played hundreds of weddings and lifecycle events and traveled the world performing with composer Jewlia Eisenberg and her ensemble Charming Hostess (Tzadik Records).
