Klezmer and medieval-choir music close 2009 concerts

Holiday spirit need a boost? Here’s our prescription. A measure of medieval-choir music and a dash of klezmer tunes. Tuesday, Dec. 15, the Medieval Women’s Choir sings Spanish and Italian holiday selections from noon to 1 p.m., at Seattle Municipal Tower, 700 Fifth Ave. The Klez Kats offer “joyous klezmer, lilting waltzes, mysterious gypsy and Middle Eastern music influenced by Jewish tradition and culture,” Thursday, Dec. 17, noon to 1 p.m., at City Hall, 600 Fourth Ave.

The concerts are part of the Seattle Presents concert series presented year round by our office. We’ll be back in January with Hawaiian ukulele music and Scottish bagpipes to chase away the winter blues. Details here.
