2017-18 Season

POA Season Kick-Off ~ Tararam: Israel’s Stomp

Tararam is a blend of rhythm, movement, and with interwoven with tightly choreographed body drumming sequences; a true synchronized orchestra of recycled instruments! The creative performers produce extraordinary sounds from ordinary objects such as tin cans, metal and plastic barrels, wooden chairs, spoons, industrial tools, vocals, and live music. Tararam has successfully made its way into the heart of Israeli culture by offering audiences an exciting and inspiring theatrical/musical/dance experience. The artists communicate with the audience in the international language of rhythm!

POA Season Finale ~ Israel’s 70th Birthday Celebration with the Richmond Symphony

The Center is thrilled once again to partner with the Richmond Symphony Orchestra to present a musical celebration of Israel’s 70th Birthday! Following the success of last season’s Itzhak Perlman concert and the previous year’s Voices of Survival, both held at the Carpenter Theatre, we are excited to welcome the Symphony back to the Weinstein JCC’s Sara Belle November Theater. Featuring special guest and famed Israeli soprano Nofar Yacobi, the program for the evening will reflect a wide range of classical, musical theatre, Hebrew and Jewish liturgical music and more!
