Yiddish Song Workshop and Sing-along led by Binyumen Schaechter Via Zoom
This coming Monday, November 9
7 p.m. Eastern Time
With Schaechter at the piano, we’ll learn to sing a few selected Yiddish songs – lyrics provided.
We’ll also analyze the songs:
Musically, we’ll examine musical structure, melodic contour, and motivic development;
linguistically, we’ll discuss the song’s meaning, etymology, and pronunciation;
historically, we’ll look at the song in context.
We aim to help you learn some Yiddish and to inspire those familiar with the songs to hear them in a new way.
