A Golden Age of Jewish music almost forgotten - the songs captured in 1930s' Berlin by Hirsch Lewin on his Semer label, thought lost when the building was destroyed on Kristallnacht, but recently rediscovered. The Semer Ensemble brings this astonishing music back to life with critically acclaimed concerts and their first album, recorded live at the Maxim Gorki Theater, Berlin. We are very fortunate to be able to present them at UVM in this limited US tour.

The all-star ensemble of eight musicians from both the old and new world includes Alan Berg (Brave Old World); Lorin Skanberg (Klezmatics); and Daniel Kahn (Daniel Kahn and the Painted Bird).

Sponsored by the UVM Lane Series, with financial support provided by the Miller Center for Holocaust Studies.
