Courses by instructor: Simcha Orchestra
Originally organized by clarinetist Richard Mermin (1938-1914) in the middle seventies, the Simcha Orchestra was one of the earliest of the groups involved in the West Coast revival of traditional Jewish music. The band has been on hiatus for the past several years but is now back in business with new and old personnel. Current members are Eliot Kenin, Ray Lansburg, Joe Sosensky, Rick Elmore, and Jim Millstead. Learn more at ncsimcha.com
