Music, Sat 5 May 2018





Klezmer-ish is what happens when four classically trained musicians – all members of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra – let their hair down, explore a wide range of music from travelling people across the world, and fuse it all together into their own unique sound.
The quartet will perform in the Round at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre from 7.30pm on Saturday 5 May.
Through exploring the music of immigrants from all sorts of musical and cultural backgrounds, Klezmer-ish take us on a musical journey through klezmer, tango, gypsy jazz, Irish fiddle music, Italian folk music and much more.
What makes them special is the rigorous nature of working in a full-time orchestra and their individual backgrounds and passions as people and musicians. There is so much to explore and the incredible diversity of their repertoire is pretty unique.
The style of the musical output of the band is not aiming for perfect copies of originals or trying to play in an ‘authentic’ style, but inspired by original tunes tailored and re-worked to their own personal taste, giving them an original twist. All the music is original and arranged by the band.
Klezmer-ish is:
Tom Verity (clarinets, whistles): Tom plays clarinet with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and is also a member of the Sterling Trio. In his free time he loves playing jazz piano.

Rob Shepley (guitar, violin, vocals): Rob is the sub-principal viola of the RLPO, but late at night he gets out his fiddle and guitar and plays anything from gypsy jazz to old-school rock.

Connie Del Vecchio (piano accordion, violin): Connie is a sub-principal violinist of the RLPO – but she started her musical career on the piano accordion aged three!

Marcel Becker (double bass): Marcel is the leader of the double bass section of the RLPO – and a massive salsa fan!
