The Hester Street Troupe, a group who specialize in Klezmer and Jewish music has been electrifying audiences for the past thirty-one years. Their extraordinary repertoire consists of Klezmer, a style where the clarinet imitates human emotions like laughing and crying, songs from the Yiddish Vaudeville and Second Avenue Theatres, as well as classic older and more contemporary Jewish Melodies.

The group has three albums. Their most recent is entitled, On Second Avenue, which is a celebration of songs from the Yiddish Vaudeville and the Lower East Side.

Their first recording, Generation to Generation, connects you with the traditions of the Jewish experience and asks the question "who will be the Zayde's of our children?".

The second, Sounds of the Shtetl, is a peek at a slice of life in the old Jewish community called the Shtetl. you will hear horse hooves clomping on cobblestone as street vendors hawk their wares and the Klezmer musicians frolic in the street.

The Troupe has performed extensively in the New York metropolitan area and have also performed in Florida, playing to standing-room-only audiences. This much sought after group combines their special brand of schtick with popular Jewish songs for an explosive evening of entertainment. you are guaranteed to be dancing and singing in the aisles as you are delighted by this dynamic trio.
