A magical celebration of life, community and the arts will take place on an upcoming winter evening in Ithaca. Celebrating twenty years of original stories, traditional tales, folk and contemporary poetry, and dynamic live music from around the world - Temple Beth El proudly hosts the Annual Evening of Jewish Storytelling, Poetry and Music on Saturday, February 2nd at 7:30 PM.

This event has become extremely popular over the years, drawing participants together for an intimate and cozy evening; a real reminder of times past. People who might otherwise never cross paths - listen, laugh, shed a few tears together perhaps - and get to know each other. The idea is to get away from the computer and television screens and share a moment of slower pleasures, together. In addition, there are always complimentary, traditional homemade treats to be enjoyed while listening to the treasures of the night.

The Quinn Bachand's Brishen Quartet will perform at the Canaan Institute on Tuesday January 29th 2019 beginning at 7:00 pm followed by a jam session. Brishen plays Gypsy Jazz and Swing.

Brishen, Romany for 'bringer of the storm', is what Quinn Bachand, one of Canada's most outstanding young musicians, and his band serve up with their original western and euro-gypsy swing homage. They introduce a space where virtuosity meets vibe, leaving you with a sense of jubilance and nostalgia. With understated mastery and intuition, the group dedicates itself to musicality and the root of trad jazz and swing with the goal of bridging the gap between early Western and Euro Swing. Quinn Bachand's fascination, respect and commitment to tradition is clearly audible, setting him apart from the rest with an effect that is awe-inspiring.
