A new concert series is scheduled to open Friday (November 6) in Abu Ghosh. The concert will take place in the Shtiley Har nursery at the entrance to the picturesque village. At 10:30 a.m. guests will be offered a glass of wine, and between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. the Israeli Plucked Instruments Orchestra will present "The Travels of a Mandolin." The program features songs of Venetian gondolieri, Napolitan songs, beautiful folk music from Transylvania, Hungary and the cotton fields of the American South, as well as music from France and Japan. Young Israeli cellist Adiel Schmidt Binur, who is the planner and artistic director of the series, will give a brief lecture and explanations between the numbers. The second concert is scheduled for November 20, with Schmidt, violinist Natasha Sher and violist Shuli Waterman playing music by Schubert, Dohnany and Braun. The improvised concert hall seats 100 and tickets (NIS 70 single; NIS 100 for a couple; wine included) are available at (02) 534-5766 or at the door. Schmidt says that the first two concerts will be a sort of trial run, and if the audience shows interest, the series will keep running every second Friday. And, "at noon," he smiles, "everybody is invited across the street to enjoy the famous Abu Ghosh humous at the local restaurant." For more details visit http://www.shtiley-har.co.il
