Sholom Aleichem.  This is the official web site for The Nu Haven Kapelye, a very, very big Klezmer group based in the greater New Haven community.  Founded in 1998, we play at simchas including weddings and b’nai mitzvahs, senior centers, pubs, music theaters, and festivals, including an annual December 25th community concert and the International Festival of Arts and Ideas in New Haven. The Nu Haven Kapelye is directed by David Chevan and membership is open to anyone in the community.


Our winter hours in the studio in 2015 have produced our first album, What's Nu? which is now available on our music page!  Watch the preview above. Or take a step back and experience our first day's recording session through this time lapsed recording made by drummer Jay Miles.
In the past few weeks the press has been talking up our new CD.
