Continuing its 125th anniversary, the Museum at Eldridge Street will present a special Klez for Kidz family concert on Christmas Day featuring Klezmerfest! Led by clarinetist Greg Wall, the New York City-based band, part of the Simcha All-Stars, brings back the sounds of the old country, playing festive Eastern European and Yiddish dance music, including freylachs, bulgars, doynas, and chassidls. The afternoon will conclude with the audience participating in a musical shtetl wedding. As always when you’re at the historic Lower East Side institution, be sure to marvel at the recently restored building, which last year added a new stained-glass window by Kiki Smith and Deborah Gans. And there will also be hot chocolate, cider, and eggnog available all day long.
