Review by Professor Caroline Bithell (then head of Music):

"The Michael Kahan Kapelye (MKK) opened the programme for 'Vessels of Song: Journeys Through the World of Klezmer' (presented by Manchester Liberal Jewish Community and Klezmorim of Manchester at Cross Street Unitarian Chapel) with a set of traditional klezmer tunes that laid the foundation for subsequent sets featuring 'meetings' between klezmer and classical, Irish and swing that included students and alumni from previous incarnations of the MKK. Katie Emanuel's set of Yiddish theatre songs also went down a storm."
