A Unique Evening of Music and Theater to Benefit A Way In
The salon, held in an elegant private home for a limited audience of 50 people, will include Sigal singing the music of Yip Harburg (the lyricist for songs like “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?”), accompanied by internationally-known pianist Samuel Heifetz. The program also includes original works by actors Polly MacIntyre, Arnold Kendall and Ben Kendall, and comedy by Karen Meshkov. In addition, noted flutist Lisamarie McGrath -- who, with percussionists Kara Barnett and Connie Paolino, makes up the Mystic Pulse Ensemble -- will present a selection of improvisational music.
Tickets are a minimum of $50 per person and include not only the entertainment but also a sumptuous appetizer/dessert buffet including wine, coffee and soft drinks. All donations over $20 are tax deductible.
The May 4 program is the 21st salon produced and hosted by Sigal over the past decade. Because they are held in private homes, the salons have a special kind of intimacy, she says.
“Many of these artists typically perform on huge stages in big theaters, distant from the audiences,” says Sigal. “A salon gives people an opportunity to enjoy the artistry close-up. The evening allows the audience to mingle with the performers as well as enjoy each others’ company after the show.”
Tickets must be purchased in advance, payable by check to A Way In, c/o Sharon Sigal 627 Haverford Rd., Ardmore, PA 19003. For more information, email Sharon@sharonsigal.com or call 610-649-0274.
All proceeds from the salon will benefit A Way In Jewish Mindfulness program. “So much thanks to Sharon for bringing us together in joy and celebration,” says Rabbi Yael. "As the Psalmist sings, 'How good it is to come together. How blessed are we to have each other as companions on this sacred journey through life.'”
