8 p.m.

Watch the event on the Brandeis University MusicUnitesUs Youtube Channel.

It’s a Mazel Tov Cocktail Party and everyone’s invited!! Throw together the high-octane delivery of world music superstar David Krakauer’s unbridled clarinet with an ensemble of world-class musicians for a cathartic evening of joy and affirmation. You’ll be greeted by MC vocalist/rapper dynamo Sarah MK, who will encourage you to join the festivities, look your neighbors in the eye, wish ‘em well, and abandon yourself to the energy of the room. Mix in Martin Shamoonpour's wild Iranian frame drumming, Jerome Harris's deep grooves, Yoshie Fruchter’s dazzling guitar and oud, and Kathleen Tagg's never-ending virtuosic antics on the keys for a truly powerhouse musical experience.  And most of all, in these uncertain times, it’s a chance for performers and audience alike to come together, celebrate our common humanity and throw a metaphorical “Mazel Tov Cocktail” up in the air to light up the world!
