Caravan Orchestra & Choir concert in Weimar, Germany

August 13 @ 20:00 - 22:00 UTC+0

More information coming soon. 

Caravan Orchestra and Choir is an exchange project between Yiddish Summer Weimar (Germany) and the Department of Music of אוניברסיטת חיפה – University of Haifa (Israel), in cooperation with the International Office University of Music Franz Liszt Weimar (Germany). The project will rehearse and perform in Haifa, Israel, on 24 July to 1 August and in Weimar, Germany, on 2-11 August (dates tbc). 

Together with the artistic directors, participants explore both European Jewish and Arab music. While having clear differences in the repertoire and style, Ashkenazic Jewish (Yiddish) and Arab music share some forms, tonal material and, most importantly, a performance philosophy with similar approach to improvisation, ornamentation, modality and many other concepts that we discover again each time!
The Caravan Orchestra and Choir 2022 will be led by Polina ShepherdMeral CihanWassim Odeh and Christian Dawid.
