A Besere Velt, the Yiddish Chorus of Boston Workmen's Circle, collaborates with the internationally acclaimed Klezmer group, The Klezmatics, to present "Tevye's Daughters: Journeys to a Better World." Join us as we celebrate Sholem Aleichem's 100th yortsayt with a concert that explores the question:
Who are Tevye's daughters today?
In his timeless contribution to literature and Jewish culture, Sholem Aleichem captured a poignantly rebellious spirit in the stories of Tevye and his daughters. Immortalized in "Fiddler on the Roof," these young women represent a new generation of free thinkers, grappling with tradition to pursue their dreams. Join us as we imagine, with loving and bittersweet humor, how Tevye's daughters, and subsequent generations, forge a proud new tradition of social activism as revolutionaries, union leaders, Freedom Riders, Wall Street Occupiers, feminists, and militant millennials.
Much more than just an incredible and historic concert, this event will honor Sid Topol, Enid Eckstein and Rosa Blumenfeld for their incredible leadership for social justice within the Workmen's Circle and the community at large.
We look forward to celebrating with you!

Celebrating 70 years, Indian Ranch in Webster, MA announced that Dark Star Orchestra will be performing live in concert on Saturday, August 13th at 2:00 P.M. Tickets are on-sale now!
For over 18 years and 2500 shows, Dark Star Orchestra has embodied the Grateful Dead’s live experience for fans both old and too young to have ever seen their own Grateful Dead show.
Recreating historic Grateful Dead set lists, and intermittently crafting their own, Dark Star Orchestra offers a continually evolving artistic outlet within the Grateful Dead's musical canon. Matching equipment, stage layout and even members (various eras could include female vocals or multiple drummers), Dark Star Orchestra's determined commitment to 'raising the Dead' has earned them high praise.
While recreating set lists song for song, Dark Star Orchestra does not try to match Grateful Dead songs note for note. Anything so formulaic would be of a great disservice to the free spirit of The Dead’s live performances.

On a trip intended to jumpstart the creative process for new material, Holly Miranda reflects, I had a dream that I was going to rent a house in Joshua Tree and go write by myself for a month. Id never been there before, but I woke up the next day and booked the first house I found and left a few days later. It was about getting away from the chatter of Los Angeles and reconnecting with myself and nature. I had a bit of writers block after the last record, I wasnt having fun anymore and I really needed to get back the core of why I started making music 17 years ago. she says.Whatever it was Miranda needed from her time in desert, she seems to have found it. On her self-titled sophomore release Miranda nods at her singer-songwriter roots but also pushes herself in new directions. She co-produced the album with Florent Barbier, and tracks like Desert Call and Everlasting, show off straightforward songwriting, soulful delivery and a lighters-in-the-air orchestration that places Miranda alongside the pantheon of songwriters who can make heartache sound beautiful. After half of her life spent on stage or in a recording studiowith her former rock band The Jealous Girlfriends and more recently as a solo artist Miranda is still experimenting and diving for deeper truths.This is the most honest thing Ive ever made; its very raw and is a contrast to what Ive done in the past, she says. After writing in Joshua Tree, she headed to Brooklyn, New York in the winter of 2012 to record most of the album, enlisting the help of bandmates Timmy Mislock, Maria Eisen and David Jack Daniels, while taking turns herself on piano, drums, guitar and bass. Theres a Motown vibe to some of the songs she notes of the recordings. I wanted it to feel like the band was playing the songs live. Theres also a few that are more electronic and ethereal, like the song Come On. She recorded that track in Los Angeles with David Andrew Sitek, producer of her 2010 release The Magicians Private Library.Outside of recording, Mirandas kept plenty busy. She recently toured the globe playing guitar for Karen O in support of her solo debut Crush Songs, she toured Spain for the annual Voces Femininas festival and is currently working on a graphic novel with Portland based artist Catherine Lazar Odell.I cant remember a time I wasnt singing. When I was little my older sisters used to make me lay on the floorboard of the car if I was going to sing, because my voice was so loud they said it felt like it was inside of their heads. Ill never stop making music. Its the best therapy Ive found.Listening to her new record, one certainly hopes she never stops.
