Check out the University of Chicago Folk Festival this weekend. Come out to support Golosa Russian Choir on Saturday at 4pm at Ida Noyes Theater. Then stop by Cloister Club on Sunday at 1pm to learn some Klezmer Dancing from Steve Weintraub.
A message from our friends at Golosa:
Dear Friends of Golosa,
One of our favorite performances of the year is coming right up this weekend: the 51st annual University of Chicago Folk Festival!
Golosa will perform at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 12, in Ida Noyes Hall. We’ll be in the pretty theater on the third floor, so there should be plenty of room for everyone this year! We are the last performance of the afternoon, so save your strength for us.
If you have never been to the Folk Fest, it is a two-day affair that consists of free daytime workshops and performances in Ida Noyes Hall, followed by ticketed concerts each evening in Mandel Hall. We perform in the daytime half, so no ticket is required, but we do tend to fill up the room, so come early to get a seat.
We’ve been learning some new songs and dances that we can’t wait to perform. We’ll also be including a short question-and-answer session for any burning inquiries you’ve been harboring, and we have some great news to share about our spring tour. Please come and bring your friends!
Ida Noyes Hall is located at 1212 E. 59th St. in Hyde Park.

We hope to see you there!
