Sundays in June: A Cabaret by a Jewish Wedding Singer

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Most Jewish musicians play the Jewish wedding circuit sometime in their career. Some never escape. In this presentation of a work-in-progress, Brian Gelfand presents songs and stories inspired by his experiences playing Jewish weddings. He uses these experiences as metaphors to explore what it means to be an artist in the Jewish community, and how one balances the joys and pressures of belonging to this community with the urge to be a unique and creative individual.
