Since 2006, Heartland Klezmorim has been performing klezmer music throughout the mid-west. Whether it is performing at a traditional event or at a major concert venue, people have enjoyed a performance by the Heartland Klezmorim. The music of the Heartland Klezmorim is a combination of foot-tapping old and new klezmer tunes, Yiddish folk melodies, and jazz interpretations of music from the Yiddish theater. This is a recipe for enjoyable listening and dancing. Heartland Klezmorim observes the traditions in klezmer music as well as adding a few new sounds.

In recent years, Heartland Klezmorim has performed a variety of performances, at traditional celebrations, dances, and concerts. This entertaining group has performed at The Ark, the Wheatland Traditional Arts Weekend, The Meridian Historic Village Summer Concert Series, The East Lansing Summer Concert Series, and The East Lansing Arts Festival. Heartland Klezmorim has also serves as the pit band for the Lil’ Darlin’s Vaudeville Show. In 2010, Heartland Klezmorim released their first CD.

Heartland Klezmorim is able to perform a concert filled with music from the klezmer tradition. This tradition includes a violin improvising a doina and a mandolin strumming a heart-lifting waltz. Heartland Klezmorim is also able to perform a Yiddish theater melody from the swing era with the sounds of a hard-driving tenor saxophone and a swinging bass and drum set. The Heartland Klezmorim is a diverse musical group.

Members of the Heartland Klezmorim have been involved with presenting educational programs on playing klezmer music. These workshops were presented at Michigan State University, the Wheatland Traditional Arts Weekend, and at the 2012 conference of the International Trumpet Guild. Their hands-on approach has encouraged many people to continue to learn the art of playing klezmer music.
