The current tour of Israel by Sydney’s Moriah College School Band is offering expat Aussies a taste of home….

David Singer watched them perform in Ra’anana last week with his daughter Shuli who took the pic…David’s report:

We went to one of the Moriah Touring Band’s performances on Friday at the Music Center in Raanana.

It was quite spectacular and a credit to Roberta and the school, The Band played with precision and real flair. The band was well prepared and disciplined in everything it did.

In what I was told was a “first” for the band teamed with the Metro West School in Raanana to do a series of workshops prior to the concert.

Some items featured pupils from both schools playing music together that they had rehearsed for the first time just a few hours before.

Some wonderful singing by male, female and combined groups from Metro West ensured there was great variety in the program.

The show stopper was Sarit Michaels from Moriah who gave the most amazing performance singing “Shema” accompanied by the band. There wasn’t  a dry eye in the packed hall.

Present was Australia’s Charge D’Affaires and Raanana’s Mayor who joined in a standing ovation at the end of the concert.

    Sorry I misspelt Sarit’s name. I can assure you I will never forget her dazzling performance. Roberta actually told the audience to remember her name when she makes her appearance on Broadway!!

    wonderful to read David Singer’s review of the Moriah Band in raanana.
    They have worked particularly hard all year and deserve the accolade you have described.
