Our Vision

In 1994, The Klezmer Music Foundation was founded to 

keep klezmer music alive and flourishing through education and outreach. Today, it thrives and offers programs to keep: 

  • teaching the art of klezmer and Yiddish music to today's young musicians.

  • reaching out to seniors, school children, and other audiences who would not otherwise have the opportunity to see live performances of klezmer music.

  • being musical ambassadors to the community and the world through collaboration in the arts.
