A HANUKKAH CONCERT TO LIGHT UP THE HOLIDAY
DESCRIPTION: Hanukkah is a festive holiday, and Klezmer East, South Florida’s renowned Klezmer group, continues the celebratory tradition by giving a concert that explores and celebrates the holiday. Some of the songs you’ll know Oh Hanukkah and the Dreidel song; and some might be new to you, such as Ocho Candelikas, a Ladino song—but they will all put you in the mood for latkes (potato pancakes) and applesauce (or sour cream)! Klezmer East, led by virtuoso clarinetist Paul Green, will also perform your favorite traditional tunes in the Klezmer tradition. The six-piece band features players on keyboard, drums, trombone, trumpet, vocals, and, of course, the requisite Klezmer clarinet, played by Paul Green himself!

A former attorney and law professor, Green has performed at chamber music festivals in Moldova,
