PKOatMansionParty The PKO was honored to play at an elegant bash on Friendship Street two weeks ago. Hoping to see more photos. For now here’s a peak through the window. Bernard, Mirko and I joined by a new freind Jenna on stand-up bass.

We played one set of Klezmer tunes. Guests gathered to listen and some even danced. It was a thrill.


Welcome to my blog: Cadence

In music, rhythmic cadences give phrases a distinctive ending, which can, for example, indicate to the listener whether the piece is to be continued or concluded. In an accordion class last summer I was taught that if you learn the cadences which you hear in Klezmer music you'll always have a place to catch up with the band, even if you don't know the piece. —Elena
