Klezmer Music

E-mail Print PDF

klezmer_musicTzena! Tzena!  was born in Bangor, Maine and has been performing Jewish music for two decades when an interfaith collection of local musicians was called together to play for an ecumenical Thanksgiving service. Band members had so much fun, that they stayed together, and have since performed at public and private events  including the   Maine Festival  in Brunswick,  Maine  the Stonington Opera House, the Blue Hill Café and a live radio broadcast on Maine Public Radio.

The ensembles are comprised of  three to nine members - on saxes, clarinets, tuba, violin, keyboard, percussion, banjo, trombone, flute, and vocals. Their repertoire is Eastern European dance music and Yiddish theatre vocals and instrumentals, as well as some Israeli, Chassidic and Hebrew songs, and an occasional original creation. The band features local musicians from various musical backgrounds who share a love for Jewish music including congregants from each of Bangor’s three synagogues.

For more information, contact Scott Rapaport at 207-990-1155.
