    Having not played a full set in NYC since the release of her new CD, \"A Living Tradition\", Elaine Hoffman Watts brings her unbelievable sound back to the east coast in a show not to be missed.

    With her daughter Susan - a trumpet playing powerhouse, Ingrid Gordon - the xylophone virtuoso, and Lauren Brody - the master accordionist, this should be a memorable event for fans of all ages.

Featured Artists

  • Trio C tot de derde
  • The Dutch music group Trio C tot de derde consists of the three young musicians Carel den Hertog (violin), Coos Lettink (accordeon) and Caspar Terra (clarinet). The music they play is inspired by klezmer, music from the Balkans and gypsy-music. They create their own unique sound, performing traditional melodies in a particular and often unexpected way. Since the boy’s enjoy improvisation so much, no musical piece ever sounds twice the same. While improvising, the members of Trio C tot de derde are playfully challenging each other to virtuosity and lyrical sounds. The music they play expresses euphoric happiness, as well as intense sadness, which means music for dancing, but also for dreaming.
