This year's festival will feature Jewish music of many eras and places, and we promise a little something for everyone! From folk to rock to klezmer to Israeli folk tunes, we will get your toes tapping and your bodies moving to some great melodies from many generations.  Here are the confirmed performers:

Headlining our outdoor stage is INDYKLEZ.  Hailing from Indianapolis and led by violinist, Ginny Womack, their repertoire combines influences from Eastern Europe, Russia, Israel, and liturgical music to tell the story of the Jewish Diaspora. 

The newly-formed Dayton Jewish Chorale will also grace the stage at the Jewish Cultural Festival sharing Jewish and Israeli folk tunes and classic favorites.  This intergenerational group is composed of your friends and fellow community members.

Tim Pritchard & the Boxcar Suite returns again, sharing rock and roll music from your favorite Jewish musicians, songwriters, and bands.  

The Miami Valley Music Men will delight 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.
