7 pm: Concert with Joey Weisenberg - Rising Song Gathering

Buy Tickets

Combining virtuosic musicianship and powerful communal song, concerts with Joey Weisenberg are sonic journeys of harrowing emotion and spiritual uplift. This musical gathering will feature soul-igniting melodies, masterful improvisations, collective harmonies and acoustic meditations. Joey has long occupied the nexus point between the old and the new, and he is known for reaching into the heart of the nigun, the wordless Jewish spiritual melody, and synthesizing it with the American soundscape and the passion of the blues bars he grew up playing in. As the Hadar Institute’s longtime musician-in-residence and as the founder of Hadar’s Rising Song Institute, where he teaches master classes in Jewish song  and produces albums for Rising Song Records, Joey’s prolific output of melodies has resounded throughout the Jewish world and beyond. Come immerse in the powerful collective practice of sound and silence!

In-person only events.
