When the weather is this cold there is no better way to warm your body and soul than with a good bit of communal dancing. Fortunately the Hallé and Klezmorim of Manchester are joining forces to bring a vivacious evening of wild dancing and raucous Klezmer tunes to Hallé St Michaels in Ancoats.

music from the virtuoso clarinettist and mandolin player Andy Statman

All the music has been freshly arranged for the event especially. You can be sure to hear staples from the genre’s roots as well as a collection of Klezmer Classical crossover works exploring the Jewish musical inspiration from works by Shostakovich and Achron. There will also be new music from the virtuoso clarinettist and mandolin player Andy Statman.

do what feels right

Whether you’re someone who feels compelled to dance floor or more of a wallflower, everyone is encouraged to enjoy the event however they wish. Whether that’s as an enthusiastic spectator from the side lines or never having more than one foot on the ground for the entire evening, do what feels right.

The event is run by the Klezmorim of Manchester, a group of local Klezmer aficionados who have nurtured an ever growing Klezmer scene in the city. Working closely with the Jewish Museum and the University of Manchester they are some of the best performers of this musical culture in the North and have a warm and charismatic way of sharing their passion for Klezmer.
