The Rochester Civic Theatre’s Civic Live series welcomes Song of Wonder at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 5.

The Song of Wonder concert celebrates the spirit of “wonder” through South Indian and Judeo-Spanish music, folktales, and poetry.  Co-created by world-renowned musician Nirmala Rajasekar and David Jordan Harris, Artistic Director of Voices of Sepharad, Song of Wonder also features a trio of distinguished instrumentalists: Carnatic percussion master Thanjavur Murugaboopathi, percussionist Mick LaBriola, and oud player David Burk.

Highlights include excerpts from the oldest known written Jewish music; virtuoso performances of Indian music; ancient Tamil Sangam poetry; Judeo-Spanish and Hebrew chants from traditional Jewish communities in Bosnia, Turkey, and Morocco; and new musical arrangements flowing from the cross-cultural collaboration of these amazing artists.
