Event Description:

Celebration of song and dance featuring the culturally rich diversity of people who call Indiana home.  

From a Native American singer who will honor those who first called Indiana home to Irish step dancers representing one of the many waves of 19th century immigrants to reach Indiana, this event seeks to build cultural bridges through the universal languages of music, song, and dance. 

Sing, clap, and chant along with the Indianapolis Women’s Chorus as they are joined on stage by other performers who will help the audience revel in the diversity of Indiana through German song, Jewish music, African American gospel, as well as the sounds of recent immigrants such as Latinos, Indians, and West Africans.

Visual images and narration will further root the event in Indiana’s diverse cultural history before everyone performs “Back Home Again in Indiana” together in a beautiful melding of the sounds of our homes.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs requested.

Presented by The Alan & Linda Cohen Center for Jewish Learning & Living at Congregation Beth-El Zedeck, Indianapolis Women's Chorus, and Indiana State Museum.
