MUSICAL PERFORMANCES TAKE THE STAGE AT VENUES AROUND ATLANTA

The Bill Charlap Trio will jazz up the Atlanta Jewish Musical Festival in March.

Running March 7-16, the Atlanta Jewish Music Festival returns for a heralded 10th year, bringing a notable selection of acts to the stage. Held at venues such as the Atlanta History Center and Ahavath Achim Synagogue, the event kicks off with a performance by the Bill Charlap Trio playing the music of Leonard Bernstein.

“Audiences can look forward to performances focused on distinguished areas in which Jews have impacted the music world,” says festival director Joe Alterman. “For example, this season we pay tribute to Chess Records, uncovering the Jewish story of the label’s founders throughout an evening of blues songs once recorded by the likes of Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters and Etta James.”
