In conjunction with the 2021 Ann Arbor Jewish Book Festival, the JCC presents:

A Taste Of Klezmer For Kids

An original short program celebrating the theme of the book “Klezmer!”, by Kyra Teis

A child makes a music-filled visit to her grandparents apartment on the Lower East Side, dancing to klezmer music, and connecting its old-country beginnings to its new rockin’ vibe.

“This is a book to make the heart sing – about klezmer music – or as the author-illustrator writes, ‘Klezmer’s oldish, and newish / like jazz, but it’s Jewish.’ Let your hands clap, your toes tap. This is picture book music-making at its best. Huzzah!” — Jane Yolen, author

Kyra Teis
Kyra Teis is a chil­dren’s book author-illus­tra­tor, a graph­ic nov­el­ist, and an avid sewist. When she’s not mak­ing art or cloth­ing, you can find her cheer­ing wild­ly with her hus­band at their two daugh­ters’ soc­cer games and musi­cal the­ater productions.
