Mitch Smolkin’s performing career has taken him around the world. Highlights include performing at New York's legendary Town Hall in a tribute to Carl Reiner, off-Broadway with the late Bruce Adler, at Lincoln Center and with the TSO. He has shared the stage with such notable performers as Mandy Patinkin, Jerry Stiller, Theodore Bikel, Bibi Neuwirth and more than one puppet from Sesame Street. He was Artistic Director of the Ashkenaz Festival from 2001 – 2006 and a producer at Harbourfront Centre from 2007-2001.



​Remembering Theodore Bikel

Mitch Smolkin

Theodore Bikel was an Austrian-American Jewish actor, folk singer, musician and composer. For decades audiences enjoyed his beautiful baritone voice and delightful stage personality. Sadly, Bikel passed away last summer and the world lost one of its foremost interpreters of Jewish music. Join us for this enchanting and meaningful hour, as Mitch Smolkin pays tribute to a beloved performer and his music.

Featuring award-winning pianist Nina Shapilsky.
