"Tomorrow night I'll have the honor of opening up the gala event celebrating the life's work of Raquel Chalfi - one of the pillars on which hebrew poetry stands upon.
Being one of my mentors, I am touched by her request, and will perform an extended, improvised solo acoustic performance to honor her classic poem "The Tree".
I hope to not only follow the rhythm of the text, but to touch on the song's gentle emotional landscape."
The perforance will take place at: Beit Bialik Thursday dec. 1st, 20:00 Tickets are 35nis http://beithair.org/about/bialikh/
