£135.00 – £250.00
Golden Peacock


The Golden Peacock  The Yiddish Song course led by internationally acclaimed Yiddish singer and teacher Shura Lipovsky with esteemed colleagues Lorin Sklamberg, Karsten Troyke, Rachel Weston and Joseph Finlay. It is designed for all singers who wish to deepen their knowledge of the rich Yiddish song repertoire.

Mornings are spent studying repertoire, roots and traditions of Yiddish Song. While afternoons will focus on studying further repertoire, master-classes, Yiddish Language for singers and a Yiddish Choir.

You will be amazed at how much you will be learning, singing and performing Yiddish song in only one week!

Here are a few reasons why this promises to be a week not to be missed this summer

  • This is the only opportunity in the UK to immerse yourself in the deep and inspiring world of Yiddish Song for a whole week with interesting and like-minded people of all ages and from all backgrounds.
  • You will have the privilege of working with some of the UK and Europe’s top educators and performers. No matter what your level in Yiddish whether a beginner or a budding linguist, professional singer or amateur enthusiast, you will benefit from the width and breath of programmes on offer through the week, both day and night.
  • The song school this year has been especially developed to run-throughout the day for 8 hours, focusing solely on Yiddish Song.  Sessions for the week will feature all the song school elements as stated above but will also include Yiddish for singers, Film and lectures and plenty of timetabled social engagements so that you can get to know your fellow students better.
  • The programme is based at SOAS, the heart of Ethnomusicology and the study of world cultures in the UK, on the doorstep of King’s Cross in central London. What better chance to combine meeting an eclectic bunch of Yiddish enthusiasts with exploring one of Europe’s finest capital cities including a special guided walk through London’s historical Jewish East End?
  • Any questions? Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the JMI team for extra information about the course, accommodation advice or financial support.
