Performing Arts Series

The J Performing Arts Series, open to all members of the metro community, includes public performances of professional music, dance and theatre productions, play readings, Broadway cabaret events, and children’s theatre productions.

The Performing Arts Series presents cultural programming designed to engage people of all generations, and to provide texture and insight into the rich cultural history and contemporary trends of the Jewish people. The Series strives to make the J a destination for both J members and the general public to celebrate and appreciate Judaism’s culture, people, spirituality, wisdom, humor and creativity.

The Fairfax Symphony Orchestra and the J Cultural Arts collaborate to create a new Chamber Music Series featuring renowned artists in an intimate concert setting. Check this page for updates on performances from the series.


Upcoming events:

Brazilian Jazz with Shtetl Roots

Michel Nirenberg
Sunday, November 12, 7pm

Brazilian saxophonist and composer Michel Nirenberg’s musical family left Poland for Brazil during WWII. With his quartet, Nirenberg will weave the Klezmer of his ancestors with his embrace of Brazilian jazz. His command of bossa nova, samba, choro, and beyond was hailed by All About Jazz Magazine’s Dan Bilawsky as “brilliant Brazilian Jazz.”  This performance is sure to leave listeners with an urge to dance, while being impressed with a saxophonist “who uses virtuosity not for self-aggrandizement but to glorify the music,” according to Raul da Gama, Latin Jazz Network.
