ENCOUNTERS: Jazz Meets Ashkenazi and Sephardi Sounds, OUTDOOR CONCERT
Jazz quartet concert outdoors on a beautiful property in Lincoln, led by Israeli pianist and composer Moshe Elmakias.
About this Event
Join us for an outdoor concert featuring a Jazz quartet of NEC alumni helmed by Israeli composer and pianist Moshe Elmakias. With a virtuosic personal style, Moshe is one the most exciting pianists among the new generation of Israeli jazz musicians.
Moshe has composed a rich program exploring the musical traditions of Nigun, originating from Eastern European Ashkenazi Jews, as well as Piyut, originating from North African Sephardic Jews, through the lens of jazz. The concert also includes Israeli melodies that in turn owe a debt to the musical legacy of Nigunim, interpreted in Moshe’s unique style. See below for performer bios.
This program is supported by the Consulate General of Israel to New England.
