World-renowned klezmer group The Klezmatics will perform on Wednesday, March 9, at 7:30 p.m. at the Campus Theatre in downtown Lewisburg as part of the Weis Center's 2015-16 series. There will be a free pre-performance talk with the artists from 6:45-7:15 p.m.
General admission tickets for the performance are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors 62+, $5 for youth 18 and under, $5 for Bucknell employees and retirees (limit 2), free for Bucknell students (limit 2) and $5 for non-Bucknell college students (limit 2).

Tickets are also available at the Weis Center lobby (weekdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and the CAP Center Box Office, located on the ground floor of the Elaine Langone Center (weekdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.).
The Klezmatics are Grammy-winning superstars of the klezmer world. They erupted out of New York City's East Village in 1986 and revitalized klezmer with music that is steeped in Eastern European Jewish tradition and spirituality. The group has collaborated with numerous musical luminaries including folk hero Arlo Guthrie, classical legend Itzhak Perlman, Israeli pop icons Chava Albertstein and Ehud Banay, beat poet Allen Ginsberg, the Master Musicians of Jajouka, Ben Folds Five and kosher gospel singer Joshua Nelson.
