April 2017 Music Event: Shlomo Artzi Concert at Madison Square Garden

Benefit Concert for ORT in Celebration of 69th anniversary of Israel’s Independence Day

Shlomo Artzi performing at Caesarea

This is the only NYC appearance of the well-known Israeli rock musician Shlomo Artzi. The concert is organized to benefit World ORT and celebrate Israel’s 69th Independence Day.

Artzi’s songs are well beloved by rock music fans around the world. He started singing and composing at the age of 16 and recording in the early 70th. His popularity grew from successful participation in Israeli Song Festival in 1970 and later representing Israel at the Eurovision Song Festival in 1975. Artzi had recorded numerous albums, the last one released in 2016. Known for being very meticulous in his work, it usually takes him up to 5 years to record an album. He is also known for holding 3 hour long rock concerts at the packed stadiums. This perfectionism pays back by the crowds of fans and supporters.

The concert at Madison Square Garden will be a memorable event for Shlomo Artzi’s fans in NYC!

Discounted tickets can be booked here.

Hot, passionate, romantic story of love, lust and history told by amazing group of  dancers using tango symbiotically interlocked with beautiful music as their way of communicating right to the souls of the spectators. If this was the only thing we produced to communicate with aliens, so they can understand us, people of Earth, that would be enough to show what we humans are about.

The show was awarded Latin ACE 2015 “The Best Musical Show of the Year”.  It tells the history of tango starting with its golden age in Buenos Aires all the way to nowadays. The audience gets a chance to experience the progression of time and norms through the passionate movements and familiar music.  Find out more about the show and tickets here.

April – July 2017 Art Event in NYC: “Age of Empires” Exhibition at the Met Museum

April – July 2017 Art Event in NYC: Age of Empires: Chinese Art of the Qin and Han Dynasties at the Met Museum  

April - July 2017 Art Event NYC: Age of Empires: Chinese Art of Qin and Han Dynasties at the Met Museum
Terracotta Warriors

Organized in collaboration with 32 cultural institutions from China, the Age of Emrires exhibition at the Met Museum covers the epic period in Chinese history. The Qin (221–206 B.C.) and Han (206 B.C.–A.D. 220) dynasties’ rulings brought in a long period of stability and fostered a “golden age” in Chinese history. Scholars ascribe the Chinese identity as we know it today to be rooted in that period of 221 B.C. – A.D. 220. The significance of Qin and Han empires’ period resembles Greco-Roman era in the West.

The exhibition includes more than 160 artifacts and features a Terracotta Warrior and other examples of ancient sculptures as well as ritual vessels, musical instruments, lacquerware, and silk textiles. It is organized into 3 sections in chronological progression. A review of the upcoming exhibition in the ArtNet News quotes Met’s outgoing director Thomas Campbell calling the show “the largest and most important display of Chinese art in the US”.

Venue: Metropolitan Museum, Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street     Time: April 3 – July 16, 2017
