This week’s video includes the following:
In this episode six Polyphony musicians and students came together from all over Israel at Abu Salem Coffee in Nazareth to give a concert and record various pieces for this episode and future episodes. Abu Salem is Israel’s oldest coffee shop. It has been open since 1914 and the building itself is over 400 years old, dating back to the Ottoman Empire . The concert was accompanied with bittersweet feelings, on the one hand the beautiful music and the beautiful location was a wonderful way to welcome and celebrate the Jewish new year and on the other hand the concert took place one day before the entire country went into a full lockdown.
We wish all of our Jewish friends and supporters a happy New Year and hope for all of us a time of health, hope and harmony.
