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.
