Jerry Lapides plays a few bars of the old klezmer wedding dance "Frailach Fun Der Chuppa," "happiness of the nuptial canopy," his harmonica infusing the festive song with an undertone of nostalgic sadness.While he plays, Lapides has the faintly ethereal quality of Marc Chagall's Vitebsk fiddlers. And the "Frailach" has the sound and feel of the wedding music from "Fiddler on the Roof."Klezmer was the folk music of the East European shtetl Chagall painted and Shalom Aleichem chronicled, the small-town Jewish communities lost in the furnace of the Nazi Holocaust.

Standing up for poor is good way to honor Martin Luther KingHow do we honor Martin Luther King Jr.? Do we remember that he said, "The dispossessed of this nation -- the poor, both white and Negro -- live in a cruelly unjust society"?Have we a better understanding of the imperatives of nonviolence, that we care for our sisters and brothers as we care for ourselves? Have we learned yet why this man with a doctorate died struggling to gain justice for garbage workers?In our climate of political acrimony, when politicians cynically exploit our fears and divisiveness, has King's life's work been consigned to the perceptions of failed, misguided policies and rendered irrelevant?

Charlotte Giza, lead singer of Baltimore band Klezazz, is ready to branch out. "We're primarily a klezmer band," she says. "We play Yiddish and Hebrew songs from Eastern Europe, the kind of music that formed in small communities and came out of what was happening in their lives and really rings in your heart. We really want to get out in the community and reach people that might not know what klezmer music was." Klezazz recently performed at the Baltimore Museum of Art's First Thursday, but despite the event's success, Giza still felt something was missing.

Some instruments are limited in their capacity to cross musical boundaries. Jazz on the oboe? I think not. The bassoon as a crossover phenomenon like the golden flutes of Jean-Pierre Rampal and James Galway? Hardly. But the clarinet is one of those instruments that can do almost anything. Mozart made it speak with the voice of an angel, while Brahms turned it into a surrogate cello, imbuing the lines of his two clarinet sonatas with an expansiveness worthy of that most songful of string instruments.
