Spotlight Event

“Power and Glory: Dramatic Tenors in Opera”

These are the voices that bring the audience to their feet in a crescendo of bravos. These are the voices that create legends. These are the no holds barred voices - the glory of opera. The voices that make your heart pound a little faster. Join GJC’s own “Maestro” Sam Feinberg in the Temin Canteen Room for an evening as he introduces these voices in this exciting opera program. Using audio and visual aids, you’ll enter the realm of legends. These marvelous  voices are guaranteed to stay with you long after the program is over. Whether you are new to opera or an old hand, you will find much to thrill you!

The program will be in GJC's Silver Kiddush Lounge.  Wine and snacks will be provided.

Free for Hazak members (it's a great time to contribute your 2016-2017 Hazak dues), $5 for guests. RSVPs are appreciated to Hazak co-chairs: Helen Feinberg and Coleman Poses.
