Tel Aviv - One Time Gala

Not too much time left to the concert that will take place in Mann Auditorium, Tel Aviv, on October 24th. Angela Gheorghiu will be a special guest in Zubin Metha’s 40th anniversary as music director of the IPO. The program is not announced yet, but But Mr Mehta himself will conduct the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. I remember when they all came to the "George Enescu" Festival in 2005. Oh, what a concert it was! This is one of the two concerts I would have loved to attend this year, but they were too far away. The other one was in Abu Dhabi, with Jonas Kaufmann.
.
Knowing this, I can only imagine how Angela's voice will sound accompanied by their music.

According to the website of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, this will be a one-time gala concert. I totally agree! I wish I could go.
.
The price of the tickets is from 55 euro/ticket to 130 euro/ticket. But if you're willing to pay about 220 euro/ticket you can enjoy an after concert dinner at the Hilton Hotel. Mr Mehta is also invited so you'll have the opportunity to shake his hand and say "Thank you, Maestro!".
According to this WEBSITE and the translation Google gave, the Annual Gala Concert revenues will be used for music education project initiated by the Philharmonic Foundation.
.
Also part of this fund raising there are three important concerts, on October 19th, 20th and 21st, all involving the pianist Lang Lang, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and Zubin Mehta.
.
Program for October 19th and 20th
Oded Zehavi - Rock
Brahms - Symphony #3
Beethoven - Piano Concert #3
.
Program for October 21st
Webber
Brahms - Symphony #3
Beethoven - Piano Concert #3
.
Now, I don't know if it's a mistake that Google made when translating, but taken as it is, it is funny that they couldn't decide on the name of the soprano. They put there two versions, none of them correct. Maybe "gh" can't be written in Hebrew.
