Their repertoire includes classical music masterpieces, contemporary and jazz music, as well as their own compositions.

Adam C J Klein the Polysynthetic Artist “Music from Planet Earth” - Shaare Shamayim Cultural Center on 10/16/2017 at 6:00 pm.

Adam C J Klein finds beautiful and compelling songs from around the globe and sings them while accompanying himself on his handmade instruments. Regions likely to be represented in his performances include the United States, the British Isles, Eastern Europe, West Africa, Central Asia, and Japan. This concert program is intended to show that, while there are differences in quality within any musical genre, there is no qualitative difference, no matter how different it may sound, specifically between the music of the West and East, North and South, Mountains and Sea. Adam Klein is a fan favorite from last year’s “Three Tenors” program, dedicated to Mario Lanza. For more information on Adam, visit his website.

The Drozdoff Society Presents: “Reflections on the Music of the Russian Exodus: Vladimir Drozdoff” - Shaare Shamayim Cultural Center on 11/4/2017 at 8:00 pm

Vladimir Drozdoff, born in 1882 in Saratov, Russia, was one of the most prominent students of the legendary Russian pianist and pedagogue, Anna Esipova, and of the famous composer, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. He left the Soviet Union in 1925 on the famous “intelligentsia steamboat”. “Reflections” is the title of the 80-minute-long narrated program written and directed by the society’s co-founder George Borisov, in which Drozdoff’s legacy is explored and performed by him and other musicians, such as a brilliant pianist Vyacheslav Gryaznov and Soprano Hanna Golodinskii along with recorded clips of the composer’s own performances. The presentation is coordinated with a dramatic video presentation of historic photographs and recordings from the Society’s archive. This program is dedicated to exploring the influence of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 on the culture of the West. For more information on the Drozdoff society, please, visit their Facebook page.
