Join us for a full day of workshops, dance, music, and Klezmer mayhem, led by the boisterous and elegiac klezmer band Mamaliga! We are pleased to offer a variety of workshops in Klezmer music and Klezmer dance, led by Mamaliga, and members of Boston-based Levyosn, as well as local favorites Sruli and Lisa, and the Casco Bay Tummlers. We are also thrilled to offer Yiddish singing workshops led by Jeyn Levison & Josh Waletzky, Lisa Mayer, and Lysander Jaffe & Kaia Berman Peters.

The festival will take place at the JCA’s Center Day Camp, in Windham Maine on the picturesque shores of Sebago Lake. Bring your instrument if you wish to take part in the music workshops. All ages, instrument types, and abilities are welcome! And if you don’t play an instrument, bring your voice and your dancing shoes! We have a full day of dance and singing workshops to offer you. Sruli and Lisa will treat us to a kid’s klezmer concert in the afternoon, and there will be Center Day Camp counselors on hand to lead special afternoon activities just for kids. After a community dinner, the festival will culminate in a joyful and celebratory concert, headlined by Mamaliga.

Come take part in this welcoming and intergenerational festival, with participants of all different skills, histories, and relationships to Klezmer music, as we gather to dance, sing, play, eat, learn, celebrate Shabbat, and build community!

We can provide transportation from Portland to the camp and back on the day of the festival. Contact us at [email protected] if you need a ride.
