Martin van de Ven, Clarinetist, Composer
“Beyond the Pale – Klezmer for the Modern Age”

Martin van de Ven has been an ESL and computer instructor, music coordinator, and, for the last dozen years, clarinetist and composer for Beyond the Pale. From Toronto, Beyond the Pale's sound is inspired by a wide range of cross-cultural influences, from Klezmer, Balkan, and Romanian music, to bluegrass, jazz, reggae and funk. Beyond the Pale’s live performances have delighted audiences across Canada and parts of the US. Their three albums – Routes, Consensus and Postcards - have met with awards and critical acclaim: “first-class klezmer,” “klezmer played with sheer gusto and joy… tightness and verve,” “fabulously inventive.”
