Montreal-based musician Socalled will present the Calgary debut of a program of Yiddish songs with string quartet that has been presented internationally in cities such as Venice, London, New York, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Paris, and more. The all-Jewish string quartet will demonstrate the historic instruments from the Violins of Hope collection.
