Summer in the Synagogue under White Stork 2019/ 5779

13th musical Summer in the Synagogue under White Stork. A cycle of concerts by European artists presenting the musical wealth of national minorities.

On 21st July, the 13th musical Summer in the Synagogue under White Stork will start. This annual festival consists of a cycle of concerts by European artists presenting not only the musical wealth of national minorities, but also the influences of klezmer music and folk music on other genres, such as avant-garde or jazz.

Concerts will take place at 6:00 p.m. on Sundays (21st July – 1st September).

Music is the universal language that everyone can understand, but this special project also focuses on the language of speech – songs sung in various European languages, including dying languages such as Yiddish and Ladino, carry an additional value for listeners.
