Jewish Week, Jan 3-19, 2018
Metropolitan Klezmer and Isle of Klezbos "bring their rollicking neo-trad sound, with forays into downtown, classical and world music, to the City Winery’s Sunday klezmer brunch. It’s an Old-World groove brought to Soho."

Cinema Arts Centre kicked off its Jewish Film Series with "MUSIC FROM YIDDISH CINEMA" featuring Metropolitan Klezmer octet, led by film maven & drummer Eve Sicular. The multi-media concert, dubbed "Mazel Trove" by Long Island's Newsday, drew a thrilled full house.

Metropolitan Klezmer's Colorado debut at JAAMM Festival filled Mizel Arts & Culture Center in Denver.

Falcon Ridge Folk Festival debut — Metropolitan Klezmer's performances were first time in the beloved Festival's 28 years that Yiddish music was featured! We performed on both the Main Stage and (with dance leader Avia Moore) the Dance Stage.
