Michael Winograd + Ilya Shneyveys

Brooklyn-based clarinetist Michael Winograd is one of today’s most celebrated Klezmer musicians, having performed with a veritable who’s who of today’s leading Jewish musicians. He produces records, composes for film, has a top-secret life as a stock music producer, is the artistic director of KlezKanada, North America’s largest gathering of klezmer musicians, and is a founder Yiddish New York.

Ilya Shneyveys is an international performer, accordionist and multi-instrumentalist, teacher, composer, arranger and producer of contemporary Jewish music, from klezmer and Yiddish folk song to fusion and experimental projects. Ilya composes contemporary traditional klezmer pieces and creates original arrangements of traditional Jewish music. He is renowned as an improviser, accompanist and band leader.


Sterling Strings

Noticing a lack of diverse representation in classical music, and a lack of well-produced string covers, cellist Eric Cooper came up with the idea for Sterling Strings. Founded in 2016, Sterling Strings has pushed the boundaries of what a string quartet can do. Composed of Black classically trained string players, Sterling Strings has performed at various venues throughout NYC including Joe's Pub, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Madison Square Garden, Rockwood Music Hall, and Alley Cat Amature Theatre at the Beekman Hotel. In addition, they have played numerous educational concerts around NYC in order to inspire the next generation of string players. The group is also highly sought after for private events due to their vast and eclectic repertoire and fiery interpretations. Learn more at SterlingStringsNYC.com and @sterlingstringsnyc
