Gala Concert 2014
It is our great pleasure to announce that our 4th Annual Concert will be held on Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. We are honored again to have our own Audrey Schneider and Arbie Orenstein who will be performing piano solo works by Brahms, Debussy & Chopin and music for piano four-hands by American composer Samuel Barber . Our guest artist will be Israeli baritone, Cantor Raphael Frieder, renowned Chazzan of Temple Israel in Great Neck. Cantor Frieder is a world-wide performer of Jewish and Israeli music, opera, classical and American Theatre repertoire. He has performed with The Israel Philharmonic and The New Israeli Opera, as well as at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. Leonard Bernstein selected Cantor Frieder to perform the world premiere of his “Arias and Barcarolles”.
The Cantor’s program consists of selections of Yiddish, Israeli, cantorial and operatic repertoire (Carmen and Don Pasquale), Gershwin and Broadway. As in the past, general admission tickets will be $20.00 each.
Patron of the Arts is $100.00. It includes 4 reserved seats and a listing in the program. A collation will follow the concert with the opportunity to meet our performers.
