The Connecting Chords Music Festival is proud to welcome Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi on Sunday, May 21 at 3:00 PM at Congregation of Moses, presenting a program of klezmer music “with a little horseradish on the side.”

Violinist Yale Strom is one of the world’s leading ethnographer-artists of klezmer and Romani music, known for his accomplishments as a composer, filmmaker, writer, photographer and playwright. Joining Strom will be members of his band Hot Pstromi: Elizabeth Schwartz (vocals/baritone ukelele) and Amos Hoffman (oud/guitar).

Elizabeth Schwartz has been called “The Edith Piaf of Yiddish” and “a revelation” with a superb mastery of klezmer ornamentations. In 2012, Schwartz was the first woman in history to sing at the 125-year-old Eldridge Street Synagogue in Manhattan, effectively breaking the ban of kol isha in this landmark cultural venue.

Amos Hoffman is an Israeli jazz guitarist and oudist known worldwide as a pioneer in fusing the rhythms and melodic themes of the Middle East with modern jazz. Hoffman was awarded one of Israel’s most prestigious prizes in 2013: the Landau Prize for Arts and Sciences for Outstanding Achievement in the field of Jazz.
