Less scholarly than Brave Old World and less inventive than the Klezmatics, Switzerland’s Kol Simcha mostly devotes itself to selections from the klezmer hit parade, and the quintet’s Traditional Jewish Music includes all the right ones: “Tarras’ Freilach,” “Bei Mir Bist Du Scheijn,” and a requisite “Wedding-Medley.” At 8 p.m. at the Embassy of Switzerland, 2900 Cathedral Ave. NW. FREE. (202) 745-7928. (Alona Wartofsky)
