Concert as Part of the Cultural Summer Program 2016

On July 17, the musical discovery "Shira Z. Carmel and her Brasserie" will have the Museum Garden swaying to the beat.

Shira Z. Carmel is a versatile artist from Jerusalem who explores the sparkle and depths of all things human in her music. Be they in English, Hebrew or Yiddish, Carmel’s songs are about life and death, war and peace, the artistic and the banal, and express the different sides of her Israeli-Jewish identity.
