Sussman and her Klezmer diva Emily-Rose Sarkova who will play accordion and backup vocals will be joined by Daniel Weltlinger on violin, Eddie Bronson on clarinet and Jon Maddox on bass.

Sussman told J-Wire: “I told them at the Gallery that we are not a French band but the woman in charge said she loved the excitement and passion of Klezmer and was happy if we managed to squeeze in two French songs.”

The band will play in the exhibition area itself for the special event at which the Gallery will screen the Woody Allen movie “Midnight in Paris” on one of the Gallery’s exterior walls.

Sussman and her band will play a second night for the Canberra Enlighten Festival.

Sussman added: “I am so excited. It is the first time we have played in an environment like this.”

Accor Hotels in Canberra is offering a special package starting at $119 including tickets for the exhibition.
