Eastern European Jewish Music Performance Traditions is a Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies class taught by Hankus Netsky.

Course Description

This course provides an introduction to the various styles and genres of Jewish music that flourished in Eastern Europe and America, including klezmer (Jewish folk instrumental), Hassidic, Yiddish folksong, cantorial, Yiddish theatre, Yiddish art song, and the music of the recent Yiddish and klezmer revival. Students are expected to participate in individual and group performance projects and to write a research paper or equivalent essay on some aspect of the topic. The course will also include selected reading assignments and will culminate in a concert presentation. No prior musical experience is necessary, but the ability to sing and/or play an instrument is desirable.
