Area residents are invited to jump to “warp drive” as nationally recognized musical group Klingon Klez brings its music to Owens Community College’s Center for Fine and Performing Arts at 8 p.m. Feb. 29. Klingon Klez’s music is known as Klezmer, a form of Jewish celebratory music that dates back 500 years. Klezmer combines the varied sounds of jazz, dixieland, funk and rock into a sound that features a strong Jewish influence. The band features eight accomplished Jewish musicians who utilize a wide variety of instruments in their musical performances. Instruments include reeds, trumpet, flute, violin, keyboard, clarinet, Middle-Eastern percussion and drums. Tickets for Klingon Klez are $20 for the general public, $18 for senior citizens, and $16 for Owens students and employees.
