July Musical Artist of the Month – TKO
The Tischler Klezmer Orchestra (TKO) is a Northeast Ohio community band open to musicians who want to discover and perform the traditional music that (mainly) Eastern European Jews brought to America.
Founded as the Workman’s Circle Klezmer Orchestra more than 20 years ago, the group renamed itself in 2019 to honor its late and beloved music director (and saxophonist extraordinaire) Norman Tischler.
Today, TKO performs in venues and festivals across the area under the direction of Moss Stanley. They rehearse at local libraries or The Temple-Tifereth Israel in Beachwood, OH.
