This three-session series is dedicated to the great Yiddish poet Itzik Manger, born 120 years ago. Schaechter will teach songs with Manger's lyrics and comment on those lyrics, the music, dialect, and more. We'll cover some of his better-known songs like “Afn veg shteyt a boym,” “Yidl mitn fidl,” and “Di Goldene Pave” and some of his wonderful lesser-known songs. The workshops are in English, but the songs are entirely in Yiddish. We will be hearing and singing different songs in each of the three sessions. Each session is one hour long and is recorded.
