THE KLEZMATICS WITH SPECIAL GUEST JOSHUA NELSON

 

SPECIAL PASSOVER CONCERT

Sunday, March 25 5:00 pm| Main Sanctuary | Congregation Emanu-El

World-renowned Grammy-winning superstars of the Klezmer world, the Klezmatics celebrate their 30th anniversary at Congregation Emanu-El as they bring us their music steeped in spiritualism and Eastern European tradition while incorporating themes of social justice.

In this concert, they join forces with Joshua Nelson, the Prince of Kosher Gospel, to explore the complexity of Jewish identity, Black identity, and humankind. Age-old Hebrew Passover songs will be melded with the African soul tradition, echoing the great stylings of Mahalia Jackson.

Community choirs will join in this multi-cultural celebration of freedom and fellowship. Details coming soon.

This exciting, soul-stirring concert is not to be missed and perfect for the whole family.
