Zamir Chorale, The Gevatron, Brookline, MA, Oct 18, 2007

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.

"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.

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.
