Shtetl’s Calling

An incredible mix of live music and performance – spawned by Klezmer Band “Too Klez for Comfort” and Michael Shyrpal’s band “Ryasno.” They take musical instruments into their hands to create a life-affirming performance about love, freedom, and beauty, which, at the end of the day – will save the world.

The natural venue for this music was the village or shtetl of Eastern Europe. Expect an eclectic atmosphere where the Ukrainian Dorian scale befriends both the Freygish and Misheberak scales that are used in Jewish music. A full set of wind instruments (clarinets, flutes, and saxophones), violins, keyboards, and percussions will charm the audience with the romantic flavor and kindness of Eastern European songs and dances.

Please join us on May 21, 2023, at 5:00 pm.
