BackRoom Boston & The Boston Festival of New Jewish Music Presents: Klezmer on the Brain

Neuroscience & Music: a match made in the cerebrum + Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band!

Join us for a sensory experience of science, music & their intrinsic connection through rhythm & timing!

A founding member of Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band, mathematician & assistant professor in the department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behavior at McMaster University, Dr. Jonathan Cannon brings this interdisciplinary musical pursuit to life! He will guide us through current research on the neuroscience of music to the sounds of the violin, clarinet, trombone, bass, & voice.

Plus a full set of new music from Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band, including a very special guest appearance by Dr. Jonathan Cannon on fiddle!

Reception with light bites & open bar follows the performance

NOTE: Though this is a free event, we would appreciate your donation. Your support enables us to keep bringing you original, engaging & celebratory performances!
