ivriliderIVRI LIDER LIVE IN SAN DIEGO
Saturday, April 1, 2017
Time: 8:00 p.m .

Ivri will be performing his greatest hits from his extensive repertoire in an intimate and raw version – just like they were first created – in his studio, on his guitar and piano.  One of the most successful rock artists in Israel today; a singer-songwriter whose lyrics speak to and about his generation.  It comes as no surprise to those who follow the Israeli music scene that the combination of Ivri’s songwriting and his unique voice has taken this bashful young man, and recent winner of the tile of “Male Singer of the Year,” to the level of “superstar” on all the major national and local radio stations.  More info

Testimonials

  • I love the idea of an annual festival. This is our 2nd annual festival and it’s our privilege to highlight the incredibly rich experiences our community builds for itself all over San Diego through comedy, dance, music and art.

    Jennie Starr, CEO & Founder Tarbuton, Startup18 and Hagiga Ivrit San Diego

  • Jewish Poets–Jewish Voices, is proud that its program on Mar. 21 at the Astor Judaica Library, Lawrence Family JCC, featuring poets from the Golden Age of Spain, will be included in San Diego’s Hagiga Ivrit festival. Our program highlights poetry written by Jews in the diaspora and in Israel. Every program includes readings in Hebrew, but many programs also include poetry in ladino, spanish and other languages along with translations in English. Our committee appreciates the participation of the community members in readings. Poets featured in the March 21 evening include Solomon Ibn Gabirol, Juday Halevi and Abraham Ibn Ezra. We look forward to participating in the many exciting events planned during the Celebration of the Hebrew Language.  My late husband, Hal Wingard, who served as the Executive Director of the California Language Teachers Association, was a firm believer in language learning and doing it through communicative-based instruction, […] He felt that learning another language not only facilitated communication in a foreign country, but broadened ones outlook and appreciation of cultures other than ones own and fostered greater understanding between people of diverse backgrounds.
