The Ger Mandolin Ensemble, 2011 is a project memorializing the Jewish
mandolin orchestra active in Góra Kalwaria, Poland in the 1920s and 1930s. the
Avner Yonai, the grandson of one of the few members to survive the war, has joined forces with the Jewish Music Festival in organizing this musical tribute. By celebrating the ensemble's spirit through music inspired by mandolin repertoire of the time as well as original compositions, we remember the lives lost, but also give new life to their musical world.

Featured artists:
Mike Marshall, Avi Avital, Chris Acquavella, Eric Stein, Jeff Warshauer, Adam Roszkiewicz, Tim Connell, Dana Rath, Radim Zenkl, Sharon Gilchrist & Brian Oberlin.
