Thank you to all of our amazing 2019 performers!  Highlighting some of the area's best local talent, the Jewish Cultural Festival features two stages of music and dance.  We are always looking for new people to graces our stages. 

Interested in performing at the 2020 Festival?  Contact Courtney Cummings at Temple Israel - 937.496.0050 or courtney@tidayton.org.  

The 2019 entertainment line-up included the following:

The Miami Valley Klezmer Ensemble brings Eastern European Klezmer to our main stage.  Featuring local musicians, this group is sure to get you up and moving out of your seat! 

The Dayton Jewish Chorale shares Jewish and Israeli folk tunes and classic favorites.  Led by Hazzan Jenna Greenberg, this intergenerational group is composed of your friends and fellow community members.

A small ensemble from the Miami Valley Symphony Orchestra takes the stage to inspire the audience with classical favorites and symphonic standards.

The Boxcar Suite always delivers, sharing rock and roll music from your favorite Jewish musicians, songwriters, and bands.  

The Miami Valley Music Men delights audiences with their barbershop arrangements of Jewish Broadway music and other popular favorites.  The stories behind the music provide additional insight into the work of the composers and fun tidbits make the music that much more enjoyable.

Looking for some additional spice?  The Shimmy Cats dance troupe specializes in Egyptian and Turkish style cabaret belly dance.  They feature many of their own choreographies and enjoy sharing the dance.
