This location is wheelchair accessible via the ramp on the Bonita Avenue side of the building.
Tickets: Suggested Donation $15-25. All proceeds beyond expenses will go to Palestinian children in West Bank and Gaza, tentatively distributed by MECA and Tree of Life.
Michael has done numerous benefits for Palestinian children, including for Middle East Children’s Alliance. He has been involved with performances for Jewish Voice for Peace in New Haven, CT through Tree of Life Foundation (Lyme, CT). His orchestra, the Burlington Ensemble, in Vermont has played widely. Michael’s program incorporates the classics (Bach’s Suite in C Major is proposed), plus his own Suite for Palestine, and Suite for Gaza, based on his experiences there in the summer of 2014.
He will share his experiences in Gaza from that summer, as well as the West Bank from March of this year. Among other experiences, he had the opportunity to play with the young children’s orchestra at Aida Refugee Camp. This performance will be the first on the West Coast at which the Shehada Shalalda violin made in Palestine will be played.
Sponsors include Social Justice Committee of the Berkeley Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship, Middle East Children’s Alliance, Jewish Voice for Peace, Friends of Sabeel.
