Russian and Eastern European Jewish Migration

The immigration of Jews from Russia and Eastern Europe between 1881 and the National Origins Act of 1924 brought timeless musical traditions and inspired new ones in America. Carnegie Hall’s exploration of this music includes ecstatic klezmer with the Andy Statman Trio, Michael Feinstein performing popular songs rooted in the Eastern-European tradition, and a revue celebrating the journey of Yiddish culture from the Old to New World.

This is one of many migrations that will be explored in a citywide festival that also features events beyond Carnegie Hall, including public programming, performances, exhibitions, events at partner organizations, and more. Explore the complete festival listings.
