Israel Day Concert In Central Park 2014

Though not officially affiliated with the annual Celebrate Israel Parade, the Israel Day Concert is how thousands of parade-goers finish their day With a star-studded musical program

Emceed by New York radio personality Nachum Segal, the concert line-up itself was a veritable who's who of Jewish musical acts. Arranged by musical director Zvika Bornstein, artists included but weren't limited to Israeli headliner Gad Elbaz, Lipa Schmeltzer the Shloime Dachs Orchestra & Singers,  Edon Pinchot and Orthodox Jewish hip-hop artist Ari Lesser. Also of note was a performance Elron Zabatani (a resident of the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City) sang, accompanied by Israeli pianist Shlomi Aharoni, an alumnus of the IDF's prestigious Rabbinical Band and Choir.

The Israel Day Concert is sponsored by the Concert-In-The-Park Committee, in association with Young Israel Chovevei Zion and the National Council of Young Israel, in memory of the concert's founder Carl Freyer z”l
