Barbara Siegel Israel Program

This year's program is definitely one not to be missed! Elad Kabilio is a renowned, award-winning Israeli cellist who has toured with orchestras in both Europe and the US. Presently he is teaching at the Manhattan School of Music. He has a scholarship from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation, which is the organization through which we were able to find him to come and perform. He will also give a presentation on Israeli music and will speak about the other arts in Israel. Open to all, bring friends and share the warmth of Or Hadash!
