Temple Israel’s Cultural Arts Committee and Hazak are pleased to announce that the annual Sandra Gamm Memorial Concert will be held at 4:00pm on Sunday, December 4, 2016. The concert is sponsored and funded by the Sandra Gamm Memorial Fund for Music and the Creative Arts.

An accomplished singer, pianist, composer, and actor, Gon Halevi was born in Ra’anana, Israel. A graduate of Israel’s prestigious Thelma Yellin High School of the Arts, Gon currently is studying for a Bachelor’s degree in opera, singing at the Mannes School of Music in New York City. He is well-known to Israeli audiences, where his performances have achieved critical acclaim: Ora Binur, the music critic for Ma’ariv, the Israeli national newspaper, wrote that Gon “has been blessed with incredible music talent and abundantly sensitive musicality.”

Gon’s performance at Temple Israel will be a collection of his interpretations and arrangements of beloved popular songs from Israel and the United States entitled “The Great Israeli American Songbook.” The concert has been performed in numerous venues in this country and abroad to marvelous reviews and standing ovations. Gon will be accompanied by the following popular New York City-based musicians, each of whom is accomplished and acclaimed in her own right:

  • Cellist Jessie Reagen Mann. Jessie is a member of the Jewish-Indian Om Shalom Trio, which blends Jewish melodies and Indian Ragas. She has performed with such renowned artists as Anat Cohen, Adele and Beyonce, and is on the faculties of BIMA at Brandeis University and the United Nations International School in New York City.
  • Recorder player virtuoso Tali Rubinstein. A native of Israel, Tali is a graduate of three prestigious Israeli music institutions – the Thelma Yellin High School of the Arts, the Rimona School of Jazz, and the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance – and the Berklee College of Music. She has performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
  • Soprano Mizuho Takeshita. One of the most exciting young singers in today’s operatic realm, Mizuho captivates audiences with a beautiful voice, musical intellect, and deep interpretation of songs. Her energy and passion for music, classical or pop, touches souls.

Questions concerning the event should be directed to the Cultural Arts Committee (culturalarts@tisharon.org).
