A trip to Yiddish land

Anne Kalmering and Stahlhammer Klezmer gives a musical depiction
of their backgrounds as Jews but also as Swedes. They will take
the audience on an exciting and zestful tour to the world of Yiddish
music and culture. The songs are in Yiddish, a language that has lived
in Sweden for centuries. The pupils will listen to fascinating stories
and will participate in song and dance. Book through Länsmusiken,
see link below. If there is lack of space, it is possible to book the
theme day without dance.

Our school project, that started 2012 and led to a tour with
Scenkonst Sörmland fall 2013, has continued since then with
Musikaliska as booking agent. In fall 2017 we plan to give a few
school concerts at the Jewish Museum in Stockholm.

Reading of Semmy′s book with music

Kodnamn Frisör

Semmy reads from his book and tells about the
Jewish central European culture that was lost in
the Holocast, about his grandfathers klezmer orchestra
and how his father finally found a sanctuary in Sweden.
The music is an intergrated part of the depiction
about a world that has vanished, but also a testimony
of human survival and the healing capacity of music.
