The Klezmer Academy at Temple Beth El in Bloomfield Hills will offer a fantastic opportunity for intermediate and advanced musicians to explore the vibrant tradition of Klezmer music. The group will be open to 7-12th graders playing wind, string, or percussion instruments.

Rehearsals will run from September to May on Sundays from 9:30 a.m.- 10:30 a.m. beginning in the fall of 2024. Students will also be given multiple performance opportunities throughout the year. The group will be directed by Alan Posner who is a founding member and former director of the Kidz Klez Band of Michigan, musical director of the professional Detroit Klezmer band “Klezundheit”, and band director at Bloomfield Hills High School.

We’re offering a chance to check it out on Friday, May 31, 2024. Bring your instrument for a 5:30 p.m. rehearsal and then you’ll get to play at Temple Beth El’s 7:00 p.m. Shabbat service. If you would like to participate on May 31st, sign up below.
