The soprano voice of this emerging Bay Area artist soars on the wings of classic Yiddish art song and repertoire from operetta, cabaret and theater in Yiddish and English.

Heather Klein has charmed audiences throughout the United States, Canada and Europe with her beguiling stage presence and versatile soprano voice. Ms. Klein comes to the Jewish Music Festival hot off the release of her first album, Mayn Yiddishe Velt, a compilation of theater music from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. In performance and on record, Heather celebrates the music brought to the New York’s Lower East Side by immigrants as well as the innovative work written in the United States at that time for theater and concert halls including art songs, folk, and opera.

Heather will also appear at Temple Beth Sholom in San Leandro on March 14th at 8:00 pm and the San Francisco Public Library on March 12th at 6:00 pm.
