Since 1994, musicians and singers of the Junior Klezmer Orchestra have studied the art of Klezmer-traditional Eastern European Jewish music and Yiddish song-with members of the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band. Many have gone on to professional musical careers. We rehearse twice a month on Sundays from 2:30-4:00 pm (including snack) at Beth Hillel Bnai Emunah, just off the Edens Expressway in Wilmette. Our students range from fifth grade to senior year high school. We perform at the Greater Chicago Jewish Festival, the Skokie Festival of Cultures, and other venues.
