The Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center (MVHC) hosted a concert last Sunday with Deborah Strauss and Jeff Warschauer, the Strauss/Warschauer duo, who play Eastern European Jewish music. Before the concert, MVHC also held a workshop on klezmer and Yiddish music for singers and musicians. Musicians who attended the workshop were invited to play at the dance party following the concert.

The weekend was full of other events: The duo held a workshop for musicians on Thursday to prepare for the musical Shabbat service on Friday, which was followed by a vegetarian potluck. For more information about the musical duo, visit klezmerduo.com.
