The Farnsworth Art Museum’s annual Share the Wonder programming will present two free concerts during the holiday vacation week in the downtown museum’s auditorium.

Share the Wonder programming is funded in part by grants from the Wyeth Foundation and by a sponsorship from Machias Savings Bank. No reservations are available for these performances; seating will be on a first come, first served basis.

On Monday, Dec. 28, Suomalaiset Jouset will perform at 2 p.m. Suomalaiset Jouset is the local kantele ensemble from the Finnish Heritage House in South Thomaston. The kantele is a Finnish lap harp that originated more than 2,500 years ago.

On Wednesday, Dec. 30, at 2 p.m., virtuosic klezmer music duo Sruli & Lisa returns to the Farnsworth. The multi-instrumentalists and vocalists play the clarinet, violin, accordion, bass recorder, cello and drum; and perform and teach klezmer and Hassidic music and dance all over the country. They have performed live on Polish National Television and Radio; were the featured klezmer performers on PBS' "Another Mitzvah"; performed the klezmer soundtrack for the Showtime movie "The Devil's Arithmetic"; and frequently perform live on National Public Radio.

Sruli & Lisa played sold-out runs of both "A Klezmer's Tale" and "Kids and Yiddish" at the Folksbiene Yiddish Theatre with Zalmen Mlotek. They perform at many prestigious festivals such as the Jewish Festival in Cracow, Poland; the Ashkenaz Festival in Toronto; the Lower East Side Festival; the Tidewater Jewish Festival in Virginia; and on world renowned stages including the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, the Jewish Museum, Temple Emanu-El, the National Yiddish Book Center, Grand Central Station and The Franklin Institute.
