At the invitation of New England Conservatory's Contemporary Improvisation department, concert accordionist/composer Merima Ključo presents a lecture/demonstration on the contemporary accordion.
In addition to her work as a soloist, Ključo was a member of the Checkpoint KBK with Iva Bittova and David Krakauer, and Serendipity 4 with singers Theodore Bikel and Shura Lipovsky, and pianist Tamara Brooks.
Among her various commissioned works, her music for Sholom Alechiem: Laughter Through Tears, a one-man play, written and performed by the legendary actor and singer Theodore Bikel, was produced by the National Jewish Theater and played throughout North America from 2009 to 2012.
She will perform her new work The Sarajevo Haggadah under the auspices of Boston's New Center the night before this lecture/demonstration.
