The Klezmatics with Special Guest Joshua Nelson in Brother Moses Smote the Water

$30 in advance; $34 at the door

www.klezmatics.com

Celebrate the Martin Luther King memorial weekend with a diverse group of dynamic performers who breathe new life into songs from both Jewish and African-American heritage. The Klezmatics, known for revitalizing Klezmer music for the new century using Jewish tradition and spirituality will headline the show with Joshua Nelson, an African American Jew, known as the “Prince of Kosher Gospel.” “Brother Moses Smote the Water”  is a cross-cultural celebration of freedom songs from the Jewish and African American spiritual traditions, illustrating the spiritual common ground of both traditions while weaving a musical story of inspiration and social action.  Special guests will be Baltimore’s Bethel AME Church Outreach of Love Gospel Choir. This is going to be an exciting collaboration of talents that will leave you inspired by MLK’s vision of a united community.

Winter Chamber Music Series: From Darkness into Light

Program I: Suppression and Rebirth

$18 in advance; $22 at the door

Join us for two intimate, beautiful afternoons of classical music with the Aura Nova Ensemble, led by violinist Mark Singer. Ensemble members include Mark Singer, Daniel Weiser, Ina-Esther Joost, Ben-Sasson, and Viktor Khodyko. From Darkness into Light will trace musical history with performances of 19th century masterworks from Mendelssohn to several by contemporary American-Jewish composers. Let the musicians tell you the story about a sadder time when Jews were barred from musical and cultural life in Europe until the end of the 18th century. With the Nazi takeover of the German government in 1933, Jewish participation in musical culture came to a standstill. Continental Europe’s loss was Great Britain and America’s gain as many musicians found havens in these two countries. And thus, a musical masterpiece is created.
