Summer 2020

During the challenging Summer of 2020, Valeria has organized with great success six Open-Air Klezmer Jam Sessions open to anyone, musician and non. Covid-19 security measures were observed and the chosen location offered enough space for the musicians and the audience to feel safe and welcome. Depending on the weather, the meetings took place every two to three weeks. Some amateur and professional photographers took pictures of the sessions, among these, Dennis BederoffUffe Berggren, and Andrzej Markiewicz who also filmed, edited and published a video of Session #5 on his YouTube channel. And Lars Epstein's pictures and words in the Dagens Nyheter Facebook Blog.

The initiative was organised by Valeria 'Clarinetta' Conte.
