This workshop is the second class of the Contemporary Improvisation (CI) Master Series.
The workshops in the CI master series are a great way to learn more about what we do in the CI department. Each workshop will be led by a different CI instructor or guest, and will feature different approaches to improvisation through various genres and styles of music. All are welcome to attend and participate.
Jewish Music Workshop will be led by Zoe Christiansen.
Come learn a tune and its stylings from the Eastern European Jewish music tradition. Instrumentalists and vocalists alike are welcome to attend, as we learn and play together in a true folk band experience. As part of the learning process, we will listen to musical examples, discuss differences and similarities of style, and talk a bit about the tradition surrounding the music. Mostly, we will play together, developing a strong sound as an ensemble as we explore the musical details of the tradition.
