Concert | Modern Jewish Sounds Concert (in-person and online)


Brooklyn-based, Native Tel-Avivian Dida Pelled is widely regarded as the greatest jazz guitarist this side of the Mississippi. Pelled’s ambitions took shape as a child, when, entranced by bebop, she sequestered herself from the world and resolved to master guitar, later earning a spot in the Israeli Army band before training at the New School on a scholarship to study jazz. She quickly made a name for herself in the New York jazz scene, recording with Jazz masters like Roy Hargrove and Gregory Hutchinson and touring the world. As her jazz star rose, Pelled felt a pull toward classic American songwriting, shifting her direction and redefining her voice.

The Innocence Project hosts a very special night of soulful storytelling and music. Kinship. Connection. Family. Belonging. These are words that describe what it means to be part of the exceptional community formed by the hundreds of individuals who’ve been exonerated and freed from prison after suffering the grave injustice of wrongful conviction. They'll gather in celebration of the life-affirming community that's been fostered over 30 years of the Innocence Project's work and its transformational impact. The evening will be hosted by actor and comedian Jordan Carlos, and feature music by The Band Called Fuse.
