Klezmer music encompasses many diverse styles from Eastern and Southeastern Europe. For this Lark ensemble workshop, I provide written charts from transcriptions and arrangements that I have made, with an eye to providing students access to learning not only melody parts, but other musical functions: bass, harmony, inner parts, and counter melodies, that all go together to create a particular musical style. I tailor the parts to encourage the participation of a wide variety of different instruments.
