The Davis Klezmer Band plays Peregrine School – Free!

August 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

The Davis Klezmer Orchestra will present a free concert at Peregrine School’s South campus Saturday, August 12. Peregrine School’s 2023 Second Saturday Family Concert Series is presented with support, in part, by a grant from the City of Davis Arts & Cultural Affairs program. There is a suggested donation of $20, but no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds. There will be an educational presentation at 10:00am and the concert will start at 11:00am. The public is invited to either, or both, of the presentations. The gates of Peregrine’s campus (2650 Lillard Drive, Davis) will open at approximately 9:45am. Outdoor seating is limited and will be on a first come, first served basis. For information, contact Peregrine School at (530) 753-5500 and www.peregrineschool.org.

Klezmer [combination of the Hebrew klei/kli (instrument) and zemer (song)] can be described as party music! Its lively infectious melodies and rhythms have made it ideal for weddings, parties, and religious celebrations. Typically lacking vocals, klezmorim imitate the voice with virtuosic, often humorous, performance techniques. This will be a toe-tapping concert!

The Davis Klezmer Orchestra are Moreen Libet (viola and the sister of R. Libet), Julie Cooper (violin), Ralph Libet (violin), Nick Carvajal (guitar and drums), and Steve O’Neil (bass). Each band member has an extensive performing history, so much so that their cumulative experience spans more than a century!
