Adult Oneg — Jewish Music During the Last Century

Friday, December 15
8:00 p.m.

Christa Whitney, from the Yiddish Book Center, will share a short film and presentation based on interviews with Peter “Klezmer Fats” Sokolow (1940-2022).

Peter Sokolow was immersed in the evolution of Jewish music throughout his lifetime. He tells his life story and shares his opinions in a candid and delightful manner, from growing up the son of a musician in New York, to performing for the Yiddish-speaking communities in the Catskills, to ultimately discovering and mastering klezmer under the mentorship of some of the genre’s most renowned musicians….and more.
