The Atlanta Jewish Music Festival is held in various locations throughout Atlanta to celebrate Jewish heritage through music and arts. It features jazz, classical, funk, soul, pop, R&B, and other music genres. Its curated lineups include Grammy-winning artists like Bill Charlap Trio as well as up and coming bands.
The Atlanta Jewish Music Festival not only entertains but also educates its audiences. It includes lectures by musicians and historians, like Ben Sidran, and many others. The festival aims to engage the entire Atlanta musical community presenting artists who reflect their cultural heritage and make a contribution to the music world.
Atlanta Jewish Music Festival was started in 2009 by Russell Gottschalk to showcase contemporary Jewish music and educate people on Jewish culture. Since 2010 it also includes a one-day Spring Festival as a special event. Over time, Atlanta Jewish Music Festival has managed to consolidate the Jewish community of the South under the power of music and artistic experiences.
