When it comes to gorgeous buildings in Sydney there are few places that can compare with The Great Synagogue. Believed by many to be the most beautiful synagogue in Australia, its stunning stained glass windows, intricate tilework and star-studded ceiling makes any performance within its hall a memorable experience.
And we thought that September was going to be the final concert at The Great Synagogue in Sydney for 2022. Well, it isn’t and my word is this new addition exciting.
In December, Live at Yours presents a celebration of Jewish music throughout the ages. And they’re doing it in style by bringing together Klezmer band CHUTNEY, violinist Ben Adler, pianist Vatche Jambazian and cantor Menachem Feldman. They will also be joined by The Great Synagogue choir for a night of sacred choral pieces, cantorial masterworks and pieces by Kreisler and Mendelssohn.
Every one of these musicians have already performed a Live at Yours concert where they wowed audiences. CHUTNEY delivered a hot, spicy and high-energy evening at Mecca Coffee some time ago while Ben Adler fronted his quartet for an exceptional night of Vivaldi and Mendelssohn carried audiences away.
On another night, Vatche Jambazian enthralled guests as part of a trio, but now we get to see them all together, blending their talents to perform under the starry ceiling of The Great Synagogue for what’s bound to be two hours of outstanding music from the Baroque period to the present day.
When: Wednesday 7 December, 7pm
Live at Yours is not only making classical music relevant once again, but it is also making it accessible to old and new fans alike in venues around Sydney where you wouldn’t traditionally expect to experience phenomenal music by some of Australia’s most talented musicians. The Live at Yours concerts also open up the musical experience to the audience so it’s more than just sit, listen and leave.
While Live at The Great Premium Tickets guarantee the best seats possible for the performances at The Great Synagogue, there are also tickets for patrons under the age of 35 at a special price. And by special, they’re almost half-price.
