The NCMA’s magnificent collection of Judaic art on permanent display in West Building is one of only two galleries devoted to Judaica in an American art museum. We celebrate this treasure with a special concert of klezmer music, the traditional social music of the Ashkenazic Jews of Eastern Europe. The first half of the program features classical music influenced by klezmer, including works by Prokofiev and the contemporary composer Osvaldo Golijov, and concludes with a selection of lively folk-dance tunes performed by the South of Delancey Klezmer Band, led by clarinetist Fred Jacobowitz.

Sights and Sounds on Sundays is funded, in part, by the City of Raleigh, based on recommendations of the Raleigh Arts Commission; and by the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County, with funds from the United Arts Campaign; as well as by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
