Wednesday, December 9, 2015

7:00 PM

The joy of Chanukah is reflected in the rich and varied musical traditions celebrated throughout the world. WQXR brings some of the diverse sounds of the season to The Greene Space for its annual Chanukah party.

Returning favorites East of the River play haunting Medieval music of the Mediterranean as well as traditional Middle Eastern melodies; Galeet Dardashti and Divahn, an all-female ensemble using lush string arrangements and sophisticated vocal harmonies that infuse traditional and original Sephardic and Middle Eastern songs; and Grammy-nominated clarinetist and mandolinist Andy Statman and his Trio perform American jazz and roots-inspired Hasidic music that will get you off your feet! WQXR's Elliott Forrest hosts. 

Video Webcast

You can also watch it live here at 7pm ET.
