Holiday Concert

Meshugga Klezmer Band &
Dave Rosen Big Band

Friday, December 12, 7:30 p.m.
CALS Ron Robinson Theater
100 River Market Avenue

Arkansas Sounds presents a holiday concert on Friday, December 12, at 7:30 p.m. in the CALS Ron Robinson Theater, 100 River Market Ave., featuring the Meshugga Klezmer Band and the Dave Rosen Big Band. Admission is free and open to the public.

Meshugga Klezmer Band, which now features Stephanie Smittle on vocals, has performed with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, at venues such as Wildwood Park, the Afterthought Lounge, and Juanita's Cantina, and at bar/bat mitzvahs, weddings, and Jewish food festivals since 1999. Klezmer music has eastern European Jewish folk roots and is characterized by its cantorial vocal style reminiscent of Jewish prayer.

Dave Rosen Big Band, a 17-piece band who performed for Arkansas Sounds earlier this year, will play Christmas and Hanukkah favorites with jazz and swing arrangements. Songs will include Jingle Bells, Let it Snow, The Christmas Waltz, and Christmas Time is Here, made famous in the long-running Peanuts Christmas special.
