A Special Musical Event featuring Ljova Zhurbin, viola, and his Kontraband in concert with the North Country Chamber Players is also a part of the BHC Summer Concert Series and will take place on August 15th at 8.15pm at the Colonial Theatre in Bethlehem, NH.

Ljova and the Kontraband bring together influences from classical, klezmer, tango, jazz and Gypsy music. Moscow-born, New York-based film composer, arranger and violist Lev ‘Ljova’ Zhurbin writes and plays music that evokes forgotten memories of things you think you’ve heard before but haven’t. High-quality musicianship, this entertaining is a joy to experience and when singer Inna Barmash emotes the full weight of a klezmer ballad with her silkily crystalline voice, all available heart-strings will be tugged.
