This year's ClassiCameri in Eilat will mark the 10th anniversary of the Israel Chamber Orchestra. The Isrotel chamber music festival will celebrate by presenting two programs on two consecutive weekends, from January 24-27 and from January 30-February 3.
The program ranges from Beethoven to Broadway, with appearances by guest stars such as violinist David Garrett playing Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto and Brahms' Violin Sonata No. 2, classical guitarist Liat Cohen giving us Rodrigo's very famous Concierto de Aranjuez and pearls of the Spanish guitar repertoire, complete with flamenco dancer Inbal Cohen. Soliki, a soloist ensemble from the Tbilisi Opera, will present arias and Georgian folk songs, and of course, the ICO itself and its multi-gifted music director, composer/pianist/conductor Gil Shohat, will perform, too.
For the rest, there's an evening of Broadway songs and French chanson, a Mozart program cheekily named "Marriage Isn't Everything" that features a string quintet and brass octet of players all from the ICO, and heart-tugging Ladino romance ballads.
The venues are the Royal Beach and the Royal Garden hotels. The package includes bed and breakfast and tickets to all the concerts. Sounds like fun.
