Singing Stencl – Concert live stream

September 24 @ 19:00 - 20:30 UTC+0

24 September – in person and online via live streaming.
Yiddish song concert –  7pm GMT
 
Renowned singer, composer and choir leader Polina Shepherd will bring to life two beautiful poems by the late poet Abraham Nehum Stencl. This concert will be tribute to Stencl, and to the Yiddish musical and poetic traditions.
 
This project is a collaboration between SOAS Music Department and their library, which recently acquired some materials by poet Abraham Nehum Stencl (1897-1983), who lived in London in his later years and who was a Yiddish culture hero. This concert will be tribute to Stencl, and to the Yiddish musical and poetic traditions.
I was asked to compose two songs for his poems. This will be their premiere.
There will be some traditional klezmer music and my vocal cycle Di Khasene. The band is Merlin Shepherd on clarinet, Anna Lowenstein on fiddle, Simon Diamond on double bass and Polina Shepherd on voice and piano.
 
Booking (voluntary contribution) and links to watch are here.
