This concert celebrates Israel’s 67th Independence Day in song. Some joyful, some poignant, some iconic, and some not as well known, these songs reflect the complexity of Israel’s soul. Featuring young talented Israeli musicians studying in Boston, the concert is organized and narrated by Matti Kovler, a highly accomplished composer-performer. Matti’s work has been commissioned by Tanglewood and Carnegie Hall. In 2013 he was recognized by the Boston Foundation with the Brother Thomas Fellowship. Like his other collaborations with the New Center, this concert grows out of Matti’s commitment to establishing the bridges connecting Israeli artists studying in the U.S. to the local Jewish community.
