What do America‚Äôs Deep South and the Jews of Eastern Europe have in common? Each culture gave birth to an imaginitive musical tradition that sustained them admist repression and adversity: jazz and klezmer.

The Icarus Ensemble and 65th Street Klezmorim will share the stage and blend their improvisatory styles in a singularly playful performance. Audience members will participate by suggesting themes for improvisation and adding their own sounds. Bring a donation or band instrument in good repair to help Indianapolis Public School music students.
