Seth Kibel & The Alexandria Kleztet Klezmer With Seth Kibel & The Alexandria Kleztet Fueled by Seth Kibel's soaring clarinet, the Alexandria Kleztet is a lilting whirlwind of woodwind, violin, bass and drums. The group's live shows blend jazz, classical, world beat and even rock to create an uplifting sound as danceable as it is nostalgically beautiful, a contemporary riff on traditional Eastern European and Jewish musical styles. With 15 Washington Area Music Awards under their belt and more than 15 years together as an ensemble, the Kleztet recently released its fourth album Peace, Love and Coffee, and has performed everywhere from the Kennedy Center to Chile's Semanas Musicales festival. Don't miss this midday concert at the DCJCC.
