Event Details

Join us for an evening of  lively rhythms, catchy tunes and witty narrative, as Katsha'nes breathes irresistible life into the golden age of the London Yiddish Music Hall.

The performance will begin with an introduction to the world of the Anglo-Yiddish music halls, followed by a romp through a range of the songs. At the end of the concert there will be an opportunity to ask questions of the band who include the doctoral student researcher, composers and arrangers.

Katsha’nes are Vivi Lachs, Rachel LassersonSarha Moore and Rebekka Wedell.

Vivi has been singing Yiddish songs about London for the last decade and is currently in the final year of a PhD at Royal Holloway on Yiddish popular culture in London before the First World War. She is the singer with Klezmer Klub, an experienced teacher, has lectured internationally and leads East End historical tours in song.

Rachel has worked as a theatre director and teacher. In 2006, she founded the Belsize Klezmer Ensemble. Author of articles and anthologies, she was Editor of the Jewish Quarterly for seven years.

Sarha is a saxophonist specialising in performing popular music from around the world, particularly in street bands. Her performances include that of klezmer, Indian, African, Latin American and jazz musics at celebrations and celebratory processions around the world. She has just completed a PhD in world music studies.

Rebekka studied composition at the Guildhall School, London, and in Jerusalem. She has a body of vocal works, acoustic and electronic, reflecting her interest in music theatre. She explores the themes of cultural memory and identity, disruption and fragmentation, both as composer and singer/pianist. She teaches, directs and performs.
