    This was by far the best Concert yet presented at Central.The 4 Chazans, the IDF Choir, the Central Choirs and the musicians of the Orchestra were all excellent. The variety and balance of the program was just perfect, and the lighting, screens and top-grade sound system all combined to acheive a memorable night.

    The highlight was the recording of the late Chazan Andre Winkler singing L’Dor Vador, with historic photos on the giant screen, followed by the entire ensemble repaeting this hauntingly beautiful melody.
    Those lucky enough to be there all were privileged. Those who weren’t can’t appreciate really how fantastic the program was.
