New York Benefit 2012


New York Benefit 2012

On October 25, The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra returned to New York for a jubilant one-night engagement at Carnegie Hall, featuring conductor Zubin Mehta and pianist Yuja Wang, baritone Thomas Hampson, tenor Carl Hieger and The Collegiate Chorale. The program included the New York premiere Noam Sheriff's Mechaye Hametim (Revival of the Dead), Schoenberg's Kol Nidre, and Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1. The concert, praised for its rich sound and "revelatory pleasures" by the New York Times, was followed by a dazzling benefit celebration at The Plaza.

American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra is profoundly grateful to the evening's co-chairmen, Adrienne Arsht and Lauren and John Veronis. Underwriters of the event included Rita and Charles R. Bronfman and Ingeborg and Ira Leon Rennert. We also recognize the evening's Vice Chairmen, Rochelle and David A. Hirsch, Chaim Katzman/Gazit Group USA, Penny and Claudio Pincus, and Lily Safra for their generosity and dedication to the evening's success.
