ESRA Karmiel Musical Evening 'Rosenblatt & Gershwin' with Yisrael Lutnick

ESRA Karmiel Branch invites you to a Musical Evening

Rosenblatt & Gershwin: The Charedi Cantor and the Secular Songwriter
presented by Yisrael Lutnick

George Gershwin and Yossele Rosenblatt were the giants of the Jewish musical world of the 1920s and 30s. One, the son of recent immigrants, became the toast of the town, the king of Broadway. The other, an immigrant himself, was feted by presidents and opera luminaries for bringing his Jewishness to America's greatest stages.

Yisrael Lutnick tells their inspiring stories in a tour de force performance. With humor and reverence, he sings an exciting and beautiful mix of Yossele's haunting and whimsical chazzanut, George's achingly beautiful songs, and a touch of opera.
Award winning pianist Haim Tukachinsky accompanies the event.

Refreshments at 7pm, show begins promptly at 7:30pm.

Tickets available direct from Israel Musicals 077-450-6012
