An evening of Israeli guitar music and song makes for a great night out. “Something Israelis love to do is sing together. So we’re bringing that Israeli spirit here,” says Tucson’s Weintraub Israel Center Director Amir Eden. The Oct. 7 event is open to the public.
Local guest singer and vocal impersonator Paz Shahrian joins Phoenix area coffeehouse duo Erez and Gal, who will play guitars and lead songs. Some songs will be in Hebrew with phonetic English lyrics projected, karaoke-style, for a sing-along; other selections will be in English.
“Erez and Gal are very talented musicians/entertainers who enjoy singing and playing Israeli songs and music to share their love and support for Israel and Jewish and Israeli people of Arizona. They have been performing together and individually for the past seven years with growing demand,” says Eden.
WIC is a joint program of the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona and the Tucson Jewish Community Center. Event sponsors also include The Israeli American Council and Abba & Sons Moving LLC.
The sing-along begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Shaol and Evelyn Pozez Event Room at the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona, 3718 E. River Road. Parking is free. A sampling of Israeli dishes will be served. A $10 per person donation is suggested. RSVP at www.jfsa.org/wicsingalong. For more information, contact Carol Fabrizio at [email protected] or 647-8446.
