Seth Kibel Trio in Concert (for Coming of Age)

 —  —

Bender Jewish Community Center, 6125 Montrose Road, Rockville, MD

"Klezmer Meets Swing" Seth Kibel -- clarinet, flute, saxophone Sean Lane -- piano Bob Abbott -- double bass

"The Seth Kibel Trio will brighten your evening with a program of Jewish klezmer and classic swing, exploring the ways in which the history of these genres overlaps and intertwines. Expect lots of familiar classics from the “Great American Songbook,” composed by the likes of the Brothers Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, and more. Join us for an evening of toe-tapping, lively rhythms, and memorable tunes. But first, let’s eat: heavy hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and wine precede the concert."
