New York Klezmer Ensemble Performs In Riis Park
Rockaway Music and Arts Council's second Picnic Concert Series performance by the New York Klezmer Ensemble, which was almost cancelled due to poor weather conditions, was a complete success. Traditional klezmer music was played, from the very popular "Bei Mir Bist du Scheyn" ("To Me You're Beautiful") to typical Yiddish theater waltzes. From the audience's response there was no doubt that each person was having a great time and enjoying the talented musical group. The RMAC hopes that the New York Klezmer Ensemble will return next summer.
The next concert in the series will be Kenny Vance and the Planotones, who will return to the Riis Park Bath House lawn on August 23.
