KLEZMERBLUEGRASS

Opus Number: 121
Music: Traditional Klezmer and Bluegrass music, arranged by Margot Leverett
Costumes: Santo Loquasto
Lighting: Jennifer Tipton
Date First Performed: October 24, 2004

Notes: “Commissioned to celebrate 350 years of Jewish life in America, the work artfully blends country steps with intimations of Jewish dance, most notably the hora and Kazatzka or ‘Cossack dance.’ Set to an enchanting score by Margot Leverett that combines klezmer and bluegrass, the work, by its very structure, embodies the complete integration of Jews into American life.” – The Seattle Post-Intelligencer
