Celebrate the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday 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 their dynamic re-imagining of Klezmer, join 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 traditions, illustrating the spiritual common ground of both traditions and weaving a musical story of inspiration and social action. Special guests will be Baltimore's Bethel AME Church Outreach of Love Gospel Choir. This exciting collaboration will leave you inspired by Dr. King's vision of a unified community.
