Canadian Rabbi and musical artist Yosil Rosenzweig rolls into Pontiac this weekend to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Lag Ba’Omer with an open-to-the-public recording session at Magnetic Recording, 17 W. Lawrence St. The show, which will have a “VH1 Storytellers” kind of atmosphere, will yield some songs that will be added to Rosenzweig’s forthcoming first album, as well as a DVD.
Rosenzweig, who hails from Windsor and holds a pulpit at Beth Jacob Congregation of Kitchener-Waterloo (Ontario), has been playing his own compositions and traditional Jewish music for more than 40 years. He’ll be accompanied 5-9 p.m. Sunday, May 2, by a quintet by his West Bloomfield Township-based son, Benji, on bass and members of the bands JamSamich and the American Gravy Company.
Tickets range from $36-100, with children younger than 12 admitted free (with reservations). Call 248-752-3762 or visit www.yosilrosenzweigmusic.eventbrite.com.
