At the Corner of Dizengoff & Broadway

The Israeli Vocal Ensemble
Guest Conductor:
Robert Porco (USA)

Songs from great and beloved musicals

The Israeli Vocal Ensemble presents a slightly different classic: the popular American song. The American song as presented in Broadway musicals by composers such as Gershwin, Berlin, Richard Rodgers, Bernstein and others: major and influential composers in American music who took popular music as seriously as they treated “serious” classical music, and their songs became part of the canon that is known as the American Song Book. 

Concert duration: 01:00:02 hours.

Live recorded at Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 28.1.15.
