Elizabeth Schwartz and Yale Strom performed for a Jewish and Non Jewish crowd in the Iosefin Synagogue of Timisoara (at the invitation of Andrei Schwartz and with the community's financial help). Yale was in our community for the second time in the past 2 years and this time with his wife and amazing singer, Elizabeth Schwartz and their adorable daughter.

Director Radu Gabrea and his film crew will include this concert in a second film about Klezmer music in Romania. Eldad Tarmu, famous Jazz player, was also in the audience.

Director, Composer, Musician, Writer and Photographer

Yale Strom was a pioneer among klezmer revivalists in conducting extensive field research in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans among the Jewish and Rom communities since 1981. Initially, his work focused primarily on the use and performance of klezmer music between these two groups. Gradually, his focus increased to examining all aspects of their culture, from post-World War II to the present. In the more than two decades since his initial ethnographic trip, Yale Strom has become the world’s leading ethnographer-artist of klezmer.
