Glasses of Wine. A pre-Chanuka solo concert in Columbus, USA
December 14, 2019 @ 20:00 - 22:00 UTC+0$20
Glasses of Wine – a pre-Chanuka solo concert. More details TBA in the next newsletter and on my Facebook page.
Polina Shepherd (Russia /UK) is bringing a pre-CHANUKAH celebration to Columbus: a mixture of original, classical, and folk songs mainly in Yiddish and Russian, including a few world premieres.
Columbus has seen her in 2016 at Brothers Drake Meadery in a Russian-Yiddish Folk Cabaret with Psoy Korolenko, The Stranniki. Tihs time she is coming unaccompanied… well, accompanying herself on piano. This new, multi-lingual, multi-cultural, and multi-faceted weave of songs will take you on a deep emotional journey.
Attention: the concert is interactive and you may find yourself singing and clapping along!
Polina grew up in a Russian Jewish home where songs were frequently sung at celebrations. When living in Tatarstan and studying at the State Academy, she played Russia′s first klezmer band after Perestroika, and toured the world with her own quartet. Now an internationally renowned singer, she brings the songs of the Steppes and the Shtetl up to date with passion and haunting soul. She has toured with her solo show Songs of the Steppes & the Shtetl in Russia, USA, Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany and Brazil. Read more: www.polinashepherd.co.uk
