“A rousing, pulse-pounding display of joyful musical pyrotechnics—pure hallelujah” and “Hits the spot reserved for joy and sorrow, one that is universally understood” are only two of the many accolades this group has received. Klezmerica has performed all over America and Israel, including the 12th Annual International Klezmer Festival in Safed, Israel, the Chicago Area Jewish Arts Festival, and the San Diego Repertory Theater. Locally, they have performed at the Minnesota Orchestra Day of Music, the Dakota Bar & Grill, Park Square Theatre, the Jewish Community Center of Minneapolis. They are frequently heard on Minnesota Public Radio.
