Hanukkah Concert with Rabbi Joe Black and Maxwell Street Klezmer Band
The Klezmer Music Foundation will present a Hanukkah family concert on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 1:00 PM at North Shore Congregation Israel, 1185 Sheridan Road, Glencoe, Illinois. Joining the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band as a special guest artist will be singer-songwriter Rabbi Joe Black of Temple Emanuel in Denver.
Rabbi Black and Maxwell Street will be playing songs from their album, "Eight Nights of Joy," a holiday album featuring classic Hanukkah sing-a-long songs such as Oh Hanukkah and The Dreidel Song, as well as Rabbi Blacks contemporary Hanukkah songs such as "Judah Maccabee" and "Soufganiot." While his performances are lighthearted and filled with humor, Rabbi Black also touches upon serious topics such as finding awe in everyday life, and pursuing social justice.
Rabbi Black is thought-provoking and accessible, a rare and wondrous combination. His infectious musical style teaches while entertaining. - ReformJudiasm.org
The Maxwell Street Klezmer Band teamed up with Rabbi Joe Black to create a great Chanukah show for Temple Sholom in Chicago. Now you can join in the fun. It's more than a children's album, although there are some great pieces for the kids, especially the new ones composed by Joe Black. He has a great ear for combining lyrics with the American folk and country sound, which work well. There are also some fantastic jazz arrangements with Maxwell Street. - Jewish Music Web Center
Maxwell Street Klezmer Band will play their lively blend of traditional Eastern European Jewish music and quirky originality. Their jazzy Chicago jazz sound is offset by violinist Alex Koffman's classically-inspired performance. This show will include Maxwell Streets original Hanukkah compositions such as "Can You See the Hanukkah Lights?" and "Crazy Dreidel."
Earlier that week, Maxwell Street and Rabbi Black will be performing together at the Union of Reform Judaism's Biennial in Chicago.
Advance online tickets are $18 (kids 12 and under $12); tickets at the door are $22 (kids 12 and under $15).
