with Diana Matut (D; Yiddish scholar, voice)

Whether you are a singer or an instrumentalist, the Yiddish language is not “icing on the cake,” it’s the gateway to a much deeper feeling for and understanding of Yiddish music. For the first time in YSW, we offer this very special workshop and we want to strongly recommend it to anyone taking a song or instrumental workshop. To make that possible, we’ve scheduled 90-minute sessions in both mornings and afternoons. All sessions will be taught by Diana Matut, one of Europe’s leading Yiddishists and artist/scholars of early Yiddish music. If you’ve been waiting or even a little afraid to step across the border into Yiddishland, this is the time and the place to do it!

No fee, this workshop can only be booked together with a music workshop that takes place in the same week.
