A celebration of song, dance, and music featuring the culturally rich diversity of people who call Indiana home. Presented by Congregation Beth-El Zedeck, the Indianapolis Women's Chorus, and the Indiana State Museum.

From a Native American singer who will honor those who first called Indiana home to Irish step dancers representing one of the many waves of 19th century immigrants to reach Indiana, this event seeks to build cultural bridges through the universal languages of music, song, and dance.

Sing, clap, and chant along with the Indianapolis Women’s Chorus as they are joined on stage by other performers who will help the audience revel in the diversity of Indiana through German song, Jewish music, African American gospel, as well as the sounds of recent immigrants such as Latinos and West Africans.

Visual images and narration will further root the event in Indiana’s diverse cultural history before everyone performs"Back Home Again in Indiana” in multiple languages.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs requested at

Sponsor: Congregation Beth-El Zedeck
