Klezmer Music Concert

The Friends of the Marple Public library in Broomall are pleased to announce a FREE  concert of Klezmer music featuring the versatile Ken Ulansey on Soprano Saxophone.  Klezmer music is steeped in tradition and is easily identifiable by its characteristic expressive melodies, which are reminiscent of the human voice, complete with laughing and weeping. Our guest artist will not only perform a delightful concert but he will also explain the origins, history and traditions of Klezmer music and its unique musical sound. This inviting rhythmic soul searching fun concert is on Thursday March 14th  at 7:30 pm in the library’s lower level community room.  The program is free and open to the public. Marple Public Library 2599 Sproul Road, Broomall. Reservations are requested but not required at 610-356-1510.
