Community Klezmer Orchestra


The Community Klezmer Orchestra (CKO) in 2008 with the purpose of teaching and performing Eastern European Jewish Music. The weekly sessions have brought together Jewish and non-Jewish amateur and semi-professional musicians, to rehearse and perform Klezmer music and Yiddish song in a relaxed and supportive setting. For more than 10 years, the CKO has provided a meaningful Jewish experience outside traditional community institutions.The program promotes connectivity to Judaism for Jews and a greater understanding of Jewish culture, tradition and community for Jews and non-Jews alike.  Music is a universal language, and the Community Klezmer Orchestra is always welcoming to musicians looking for an opportunity to play.  The group rehearses Monday evenings from 6-8PM in Montreal.  Please contact for the latest schedule.
