We Wish You a Klezmer Christmas

Arranged by Lauren Bernofsky
Grade: 2.5

Christmas and Chanukah faiths collide in this hilarious yet musically satisfying option for your winter program! Four popular Christmas melodies are set in four distinct and characteristic klezmer styles. Opening with Jingle Bells over a slow and dramatic Doina, the music moves into a lively version of We Wish You a Merry Christmas as a Bulgar. A Khosidl is the setting for a slower, restrained version of Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (complete with “shout chorus!”). Then the music takes off with Deck the Halls presented as a Sher. Of course, the Dreidel Song makes a cameo appearance at the end. Tons of fun and wildly entertaining! (3:00)
