Beineinu's Allison Epstein Brings You a New Concert Series!


In anticipation of MidAtlantic Opera's PRAYER FOR PEACE concert at NJPAC on Oct 27, soprano Allison Charney and violinist Kelly Hall-Tompkins will present Israeli composer Moshe Knoll's lush setting of Psalm 133. Maestro Jason Tramm will conduct veteran actor of stage and screen Jordan Charney in Schoenberg's gripping cantata "A Survivor from Warsaw"  along with a special performance by the Seton Hall Chorus.

Violinist Kelly Hall-Tompkins will also play a suite from Fiddler on the Roof, arranged for her, that she will both perform with orchestra and record later this year. She will be accompanied by Stephen Benson, guitar; Joshua Camp, accordion and Steve Moran, bass.

Pianist Julia Zilberquit will play selections of the great Russian composers - Rachmaninoff, Scriabin and Tchaikovsky - in advance of her upcoming concerts in London and St. Petersburg.

And, in preparation for Open Source Music Festival, pianist Joel Fan will preform several new pieces by contemporary composers.

A portion of the proceeds from all ticket sales supports the cutting-edge cancer research of the Basser Center for BRCA.

Smorgasburg is the largest weekly open-air food market in America, attracting 20,000-30,000 people to Brooklyn each weekend to eat from 100 local vendors—Saturdays on the Williamsburg waterfront and Sundays in beautiful Prospect Park. It launched May 21, 2011, as a spinoff of Brooklyn Flea (founded in 2008), and has since launched dozens of small businesses and attracted millions of visitors. The New York Times dubbed Smorgasburg “The Woodstock of Eating."
