Chicago’s Maxwell Street Klezmer Band has inspired audiences in U.S. and Europe since 1983 with their original takes on Yiddish songs and klezmer dance music. Under the direction of violinist Alex Koffman, classical sophistication meets theatrical fun in a performance filled with joy, soul, and humor that engages audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The band has played in Carnegie Hall and in festivals across Europe, collaborated with Lyric Opera of Chicago and Chicago Sinfonietta. They are celebrating their 36th (“double chai—to life”) Anniversary in 2019.
