“British, Yiddish & Kiddush Part 2” is a one-night-only musical event at Toronto’s Roy Thompson Hall on Thursday, March 30, 2017.
The production features the three musical talents who starred in the original “British, Yiddish & Kiddush” in 2016 – British entertainer Simon Spiro, Yiddish entertainer Mike Burstyn, and world-renowned Israeli Cantor Itzhak Meir Helfgot. Each one is a superstar in his own area of music, and last year their coming together to perform for the first time in “British Yiddish & Kiddush” was indeed an historical event. Keeping the formula from last year’s success, the three will once again be accompanied by the Sing-for-the-Children Orchestra – a 50-piece classical orchestra, each member of which is hand-selected from Ontario’s leading orchestras for this special concert event. Eminent Australian conductor Russell Ger returns to lead the ensemble, and Broadway and television star Thom Allison reprises his role as narrator for the evening.
