Looking forward to the Tishrei Holidays, The Israeli Andalusian Orchestra will present the concert “Selichot and Song” with guest singers Shuli Rand and liturgical singer Benjamin Bouzaglo. The concerts will take place from September 4 – 26, 2019, conducted by Rafi Bitton.

The “Selichot and Song” program, first initiated by the Israeli Andalusian Orchestra Ashdod a decade ago, has become a tradition. Staged in the month of Elul, the concerts are dedicated to the singing of Selichot and Israeli songs that reflect the spirit of the holidays.

Singer and creative artist Shuli Rand will be a guest performer at the concert, singing from his own repertoire as well as Selichot. International solo artist Benjamin Bouzaglo will be performing with the orchestra. Born in France, Bouzaglo specializes in liturgical and Andalusian singing, performing worldwide and bringing people together through his music.

The concert program will be composed of Selichot and Israeli songs, in orchestral arrangements characteristic of the Andalusian Orchestra, including: “Adon HaSelichot”, “El Nora Alila”, “Anenu”, “Avinu Malkenu”, “Shma Koli”, “Ben Adam Ma Lecha Nirdam” and more.
