Meeting the Musical Explorers Artists: Yiddish Folk Music with Yale
Our Musical Explorers teachers kicked off the New Year with their second semester of the program! During our mid-year professional development workshops, we gave them a taste of the music genres that their students will hear during our concerts in May.
This semester, we learn about three different genres of music that can be heard in New York City: Mexican music, classical music, and Yiddish folk music. Here’s a video of our Musical Explorers artist Yale with his band mate and wife Elizabeth sharing about the origins of Yiddish folk music and its role in shaping New York City, plus some of their favorite places to experience Yiddish culture.
