Vessel of Song

Explore the intersection between classical music and Klezmer musical culture.

Multifaceted Klezmer musicians Joshua Horowitz and his Veretski Pass bandmates come together with members of the San Francisco Symphony in a program that celebrates music as a magnetizing heart of our community.

Joshua Horowitz notes, “What I love about music is its ability to be fun, be creative, odd, and bizarre, to bring people together in a community . . . . That’s a really important part of music for me.”
