The Nu Haven Kapelye, is a Klezmer orchestra made up of musicians from many faiths and all walks of life: amateurs, professionals, young and old. The 20+ musicians and singers who comprise the Nu Haven Kapelye come together to play and explore the sounds of Klezmer, Eastern European Jewish dance music and Yiddish song. The group is Southern New England’s largest Klezmer orchestra, but perhaps more importantly this group unveils the best of what happens when people of all ages come together to make music.
This fall the group released it's first CD, What's Nu?
