Israel Prize winners, The Gevatron: The Israeli Kibbutz
Singers, will perform with America’s foremost Jewish choral ensemble, the Zamir
Chorale of Boston, on Thursday evening, October 18, 7:30 pm at
Congregation Kehillath Israel in Brookline.
The Israel Prize is the most prestigious award handed
out by the State of Israel and is presented annually for
distinguished achievement in scholarship, the arts, or
public service. The Gevatron, which received the
award in May, was founded in the same year as Israel
and is the best-known and most popular traditional
folk-singing group in the country. The exclusive Boston
concert will include Hebrew music in two very different
forms – the exquisite artistry of the Zamir along with
the rousing folk music of the Gevatron.
Those Were the Days – These Are the Songs is sponsored by the Zamir Chorale of Boston
and the Jewish Agency, and cosponsored by the Consulate of Israel to New England
and the Combined Jewish Philanthropies.
Tickets are $18 for unreserved seats, $36 for reserved seats; $12 for students and
seniors and are available on line, www.zamir.org
or by calling Zamir, 617/244-6333.
