New Horizons Dixieland Band

12:00 pm Noon

NHS Hazak presented a delicious lunch buffet and concert of Dixieland Jazz and more on Wedneday, September 17th. After enjoying the buffet that included Asian chicken, vegetable fried rice and lo mein, salad and assorted cookies and fruit, Rabbi David Siff led us in Birkat HaMazon, Grace after Meals.

The New Horizons Dixieland Band is led by tuba player Bruce Knapp, who introduced most of the songs. The band is a subgroup of the larger New Horizons Band of Cincinnati, which consists of 40+ players. NHS member Claire Lee is also a long-time member of the group, playing on both piano and piccolo. As a special treat, NHS member Jeri Fish sang the Yiddish classic, "Bei Mir Bist Du Shein" accompanied by the Band. In addition to a variety of Dixieland numbers, the band delighted the audience with a rendition of "Havah Nagilah", inspiring several to get up and dance!
