Duo Amal
Featuring Palestinian pianist Bishara Haroni and Israeli pianist Yaron Kohlberg

$28 in advance; $35 at the door

Haroni and Kohlberg, widely recognized as the pre-eminent pianists of their generation in their respective homelands, create music with incredible passion, energy, and finesse. As Duo Amal, the team’s repertoire sweeps from the Masters to contemporary Israeli and Palestinian composers. Together the pair explores the myriad of sounds and possibilities afforded by the piano duo – a form of classical music almost lost in the modern age. Whether playing two grand pianos nestled together or sharing the same keyboard, they bring the voice of youth to bear on a conflict they have endured their whole lives, and their exhilarating performances are a transcendent plea for peace, and a vital celebration of the capacity of music to join people across the boundaries of culture and place. Haroni and Kohlberg have entertained audiences in Europe, the US, Asia and the Far East, stopping at venues as prestigious as New York’s Carnegie Hall; the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC; and the Beethovenhalle in Bonn, Germany.

$28 in advance; $35 at the door

You may have never heard of “kosher gospel” music before, but the inspirational performances of Joshua Nelson, the creator of this style, will surely call out to your soul. Nelson returns to the Gordon for an evening of powerful, spiritual, celebratory music in tribute to Martin Luther King Jr., with special guests the Bethel AME gospel choir. Kosher gospel, for Nelson, is a way to claim both parts of his identity as a Black Jew. Affectionately known as the “Prince of Kosher Gospel,” Nelson has performed his fusion of Jewish songs and lyrics with the soulful sounds of American gospel music before presidents, congregations, at major music festivals across the country, and for Oprah, who called him the “Next Big Thing.”
