Klezmer Music Foundation

What is The Klezmer Music Foundation?

In 1983, Lori Lippitz founded the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band. In 1994, she established THE KLEZMER MUSIC FOUNDATION, INC., in order to keep klezmer music alive and flourishing through education and outreach.

The goals of the Foundation are:

  • To teach a lost art to future generations
  • To reach out to seniors, school children, and other audiences who would not otherwise have the opportunity to see live performances
  • To be musical ambassadors to the community and the world through collaboration in the arts
  • To preserve, revive, share and teach the Jewish cultural heritage into the future
