Adrienne Cooper (USA)


Internationally recognized as one of this generation's most influential performers of Yiddish vocal music, Adrienne Cooper appears on concert, theater, and club stages around the world and her singing has been featured on some twenty recordings including the Grammy-nominated "Partisans of Vilna." She has mentored and
inspired a generation of singers and bands in the burgeoning klezmer revival scene , teaching internationally as well as performing and recording with, among others, Mikveh - her virtuoso Jewish women's klezmer ensemble, The Klezmatics, Hasidic New Wave, Zalmen Mlotek, The Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band, Kapelye, Marilyn Lerner, and Frank London's Shekhine Big Band.

Her singing can be heard in the educational installation at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and on the museum's CD productions "Remember the Children" and "Hidden Histories: Songs from the Kovno Ghetto."

She is co- creator of groundbreaking new works of Yiddish/English music theater - including the acclaimed "The Memoir of Gluckl of Hameln" and "Ghetto Tango." Each summer, under the auspices of the Jewish Community Development Fund of American Jewish World Service, Ms. Cooper travels to Russia and the Ukraine to train a new generation of Jewish musicians from throughout the former Soviet territories.

Ms. Cooper received her musical training at the Rubin Academy in Jerusalem, and holds degrees in history from Hebrew University and the University of Chicago. She served for a decade as Assistant Director of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, Director of its Summer Intensive Yiddish Language and Culture Program at Columbia University, and co-founder of the model intergenerational Yiddish folk arts program, Klezcamp.
