The 11th annual Hebrew Song Festival is set to take place April 14-19 (Hol Hamoed Passover) at the Holon Theater. Top talents from the local music industry will feature in 22 shows during the event. Folk singer Esther Ofarim, well-known for her partnership with her husband Abi, will make a guest appearance at the festival. Ofarim will team up with Yoni Richter and Miri Mesika. The festival bill includes a who's who in today's Hebrew song market. Nurit Galron, one of Israel's most successful and prolific singers since the 1970s, will perform a gala show at the happening. Galron, who recently released a new album, is the recipient of a special prize given by festival coordinators for her contribution to Hebrew music. She will team up with young singers Sheila Farber and Rona Kenan during her performance.
