An Evening With Adrianne Greenbaum

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Nationally acclaimed classical and klezmer flutist Adrianne Greenbaum joined Profiles in Folk host Steve Winters Friday for a live performance and conversation in WSHU's Studio A about the role of the flute in the traditional Jewish music known as klezmer. The original sounds of the wood flute were heard throughout Eastern Europe in the mid-nineteenth century until "louder" instruments such as clarinet and trumpet edged this beautiful sound out of the shtetl bands. Greenbaum, a soloist with the New Haven Symphony and Orchestra New England, makes her case for the flute's return to klezmer.
