TZIMMES- Jewish Classical Music Trio at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Sunday Oct 31, 2010

TZIMMES
Sunday October 31, 2pm-3pm
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, 578 Carrall

A Yiddish word for a sweet culinary concoction, tzimmes, made from a variety of honey, raisins, carrots and prunes, is a perfect complement to the main course of a Jewish feast. This is a wonderful description of the group Tzimmes who will share an afternoon of music in Vancouver’s classical Chinese garden. Original in concept and sound, Tzimmes had its beginnings in Victoria and has played for enthusiastic audiences within and outside the Jewish community for over twenty years. The concert trio consists of: Moshe Denburg, vocals and guitar; Yona Bar-Sever, bass, guitar and hand percussion; and Saul Berson, saxophone, clarinet and flute. Tzimmes is at the forefront of the multi-faceted approach to Jewish music making today. (www.tzimmes.net) For Garden information phone 604-662-3207 or go to www.vancouverchinesegarden.com.

DNC STREET MARKET & FAIR
Sunday October 31, 12pm-5pm
Pigeon Park, Carrall & E. Hastings

Since June 2010, the newly-formed residents’ Downtown Eastside Neighbourhood Council and a great team of volunteers has produced every Sunday afternoon in Pigeon Park a wildly successful Street Market and Fair. The Festival is pleased to join the Market and Fair this Sunday with an Open Mic for songs and spoken word, and a showcase of music, dance, buskers, song and costume featuring Downtown Eastside involved artists and residents.
There is so much to see and hear! Start the afternoon off with the new upbeat street band Deet Street, or enjoy the songs of the Carnegie Village Choir. For full details on these groups, see Music in the Streets.
Wander into the InterUrban Gallery and work with others on a banner for the DTES Neighbourhood Council. Performing outside are the Carnegie Street Band, playing horns, percussion and other music makers; the Sunshine Choir, a Chinese seniors choir led by Swallow Zhou who meet weekly in Oppenheimer Park; and Montana King, a visual artist and poet who will bring her costumed character to the afternoon.
Step up to the Open Mic with a poem or a story or a rant or a song. Sign up at 12:30pm at one of the tents on Carrall Street. Do you love to read out loud? Then join the Marathon Book Reading and take a turn reading from Saltwater City: The Chinese in Vancouver by Paul Yee. Hosted by the W.A. Deacon Literary Foundation. For more info: www.deaconfoundation.com. Thanks to Douglas & McIntyre Publishing for copies of the book.
