Welcome to the Kol Tzedek Simcha Band! We are a community band that plays mainly klezmer and some other jewish music for big holiday events in Kol Tzedek's year. Dan Blacksberg, trombonist and KT's Klezmer Artist In Residence will lead the band for Simchat Torah, Hannuakh, and Purim.
For the coming Jewish year of 5778, we're looking to build KT's Simcha Band in the congregation and in the community. This survey is to get information of what you play and your availability for the planned performances for the band so we can add you to the Simcha band mailing list. For each of the three Holiday performances listed below, we will have 3 rehearsals in the few weeks before the event. Music will be delivered before that. Currently, all ages, instruments, and levels, are welcome, though a basic proficiency of reading music, learning music by ear, or both is highly recommended.
