UCLA American Jewish Music Festival: Music Crossing Boundaries
Sunday, March 1, 2020
The UCLA American Jewish Music Festival showcases a fascinating exploration of diverse musical styles of the American Jewish experience. From classical to klezmer, tango to Middle Eastern, bluegrass to Broadway – hear how Jewish music and culture have interacted with and been influenced by other cultures and music. Featuring artists from LA and beyond, this day offers concerts, workshops and more, including ‘JAM (Jewish American Music) Talks’, where artists share about their musical influences and explore if and how their music reflects their Jewish identity.
