About deCordova Summer Performance Series – Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band

deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum is pleased to announce the 2022 Summer Performance Series that invites viewers to explore ideas of kinship, connection and ancestry through the performing arts. These themes are also explored by exhibiting visual artists in The New England Triennial and Melvin Edwards: Brighter Days. Each event this summer offers different experiences of cultures, traditions, and familial connections.

We are excited to share a six week series of world renowned artistic performances. Performances are open to all ages and may be indoors or outside. Please review each event for details.

Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band

Internationally-acclaimed Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band brings passion, virtuosity, and contagious energy to every performance. They improvise with the intimacy of chamber music and the intensity of a rowdy dance band. At the 2012 International Jewish Music Festival, they won the “Best Klezmer Band” and “Audience Choice” awards, and judges heralded them as “a true musical democracy”. Ezekiel’s Wheels features Jonathan Cannon (violin), Kirsten Lamb (double bass, lead vocals), Nat Seelen (clarinet), and Pete Fanelli (trombone).
