Always a sell-out, tickets are on sale now for the critically acclaimed Winter Jewish Music Concert to take place on Saturday, Jan. 10, at 8 p.m., in the Bertha Abess Sanctuary on the Temple Israel of Greater Miami campus, 137 NE 19 St. in Miami.
Recognized as one of the country’s leading Jewish music concerts for bringing together on one stage established and emerging talents in the field, “this year’s lineup may be the most varied yet,” said program director Alan Mason, a retired Barry University music professor and prominent pianist who has performed at the White House and Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.; New York’s Carnegie Hall, and is a New World Symphony alumnus.
Now in its seventh year, the concert will feature musical artists from around the country and South Florida performing a wide range of Jewish music, from Yiddish, Ladino, Israeli and Sephardic, to cantorial, classical, jazz, pop and folk.
Reflecting the range of musical styles will be a variety of performers, including world-famous cantor and operatic tenor Alberto Mizrahi, African-American Jewish opera-turned-Yiddish singer Anthony Mordechai Tzvi Russell, and contemporary Jewish singer/songwriter Peri Smilow. Ensembles such as the award-winning Duo Sonidos, at the vanguard of the guitar chamber music world; Tizmoret, Queens College Hillel’s student a capella group, and the local Second Avenue Jewish Chorale, comprised of 30 singers from diverse social, religious and age backgrounds, will take the stage.
Tickets are $18 for general admission, $100 for preferred seating, and are available at the concert’s website, JewishConcert.org, or by calling 1-800- 838-3006.
