Tickets & information:

is a fresh new Jewish folk ensemble that has been wowing local audiences since their concert debut in November 2002. They feature graceful arrangements of new Jewish liturgical and inspirational music in Hebrew and English, influenced by traditional music from folk cultures around the world: all-original compositions by Cantor Terry Horowit and the group's founder and arranger, accordion virtuoso Wendy Morrison, with Marcia Bronstein on piano, Richard Seidel on cello and bass, and multi-instrumentalist David Julian Gray.

Is led by seminal klezmer revivalist David Julian Gray on clarinet, guitar, and vocals, with Wendy Morrison on accordion, and Richard Seidel on bass. Their interpretation of Klezmer and other traditional music, closely and not-so-closely related, is informed by David's scholarship and rock'n'roll heart, Wendy's dynamic sense of tradition and bassist Richard Seidel's unerring ear and solid rhythm. Their common love and respect for klezmer, with the tensions of their competing instincts, have produced in Klezcentricity one of the most exciting and creative ensembles working today.
