Experience the lost music of Semer Records. In 1930’s Berlin, Jewish musicians (no matter the style) were banned from public performance. So the owner of the Hebrew Book Store started recording it all....klezmer, cabaret, classical, novelty, the whole shebang.
On Kristallnacht, it was all destroyed.

This music of Jewish life in Berlin was thought to be lost forever but in the 1990’s a German researcher went on a quixotic quest across Euroope to see if he could find any remnants of the records. Shockingly, he recovered a large majority of the catalogue (in people’s attics, in suitcases under beds, flea markets and the like). It is now being performed by a world-class ensemble of musicians including three of the finest Yiddish singers in the world, Lauren Sklamberg, Daniel Kahn, and Sasha Lurje.

Each song has a story behind it, one more unbelievable than the last. It will be an incredibly powerful — and enjoyable — performance. (Translations will be on screen as well) Dinner should be pretty good, too!
