Veretski Pass (http://veretskipass.com), a virtuoso trio that performs traditional Eastern European Jewish music, made a visit to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on February 19 and 20, 2007. Here they play Yankee Doodle Dandy at one of their workshops—first straight, then in a Jewish hosidl style, then in a Ukranian kolomeyke style. The members of Veretski Pass are Cookie Segelstein on violin and viola, Josh Horowitz on tsimbl (cymbalom), and Stuart Brotman on bass, basy, tillinca, and baraban.
