Downtown Hartford
Charter Oak Cultural Center

Adrianne Greenbaum and her klezmer ensemble FleytMuzik will perform “Farewell to the Homeland: Polyn” at Charter Oak Cultural Center (21 Charter Oak Ave, Hartford, CT) on March 23 at 7:00 pm. The concert is made possible by UConn's Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life in coordination with Charter Oak Cultural Center.

A highly acclaimed musician with degrees from Yale School of Music and Oberlin College Conservatory, Professor Greenbaum is a sought after flutist who has performed worldwide and is the leading pioneer revivalist of the klezmer flute tradition. Klezmer music, the traditional music of eastern European Jewry, is known for the beautiful, soulful, and joyous sounds of flute, violin, cimbalom, and bass. FleytMuzik is a unique and charismatic ensemble that has brought klezmer music to the world stage; and their concerts, performed on the historic instruments of the 19th century, bring to life the music of eastern European Jewry and its shtetl bands. Flutist Adrianne Greenbaum performs with ensemble members Pete Rushefsky (cimbalom), Jake Shulman-Ment (violin), Michael Alpert (violin), and Brian Glassman (bass).
