Heartland Klezmorim began their musical journey in 2006, performing old-time klezmer music. Since that time, their repertoire has expanded to performing music from the Yiddish theater, Yiddish/klezmer swing, and jazz interpretations of klezmer music. Whether it is a concert, dance, bar mitzvah, bat mitzvah, anniversary, Hanukkah event, simchat torah, or any party, Heartland Klezmorim will help make your event joyous and memorable.
