Musical Talents to Collaborate with Toronto’s Top Musicians

Music has long been called the “international language”, a language that transcends borders, cultures and religions.

Honeycomb Way: A Musical Journey into the Sacred is a project of the Koffler Centre of the Arts, which will be celebrating Jewish musical expression in innovative ways Wednesday, March 28 at 8 PM at the Toronto’s St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts (Jane Mallett Theatre, 27 Front St E, Toronto).

World-renowned musicians, Yair Dalal, an Israeli of Iraqi-Jewish descent, and New York-based Frank London of The Klezmatics, will spend a week in residence at the Koffler Centre of the Arts to collaborate with a diverse group of top Toronto musicians to explore and create new music together.

This unique coming together of many cultural perspectives will present a marriage of Middle Eastern and Eastern European Jewish music together with Canadian perspectives to create a truly global result. As part of their residency, Dalal and London will also offer public talks and master classes and will meet with students across the GTA. The master class participants will join the core nine-piece ensemble on stage at the St. Lawrence Centre performance – truly bringing community together through music.

The possibilities are endless as Honeycomb Way blends rich Jewish musical traditions with the influence of other world cultures, rhythms and sounds to create something unique and powerful for this special once-in-lifetime performance.

The repertoire for this world premiere will draw on Jewish spiritual music that is not widely known or understood, even in the Jewish community.

The core material will be new interpretations of piyyutim (liturgical poems set to music) and nigunim (spiritual melodies) but you don’t need to be Jewish to be moved by the end result – a one-of-a-kind coming together of musical minds.
