South Berkshire Concerts presents an exciting and innovative multi-media collaboration with Hevreh Ensemble and photographer Loli Kantor. Titled “Path of Light,” the project includes original works by Hevreh member and composer Jeff Adler and a video projection incorporating images from Loli Kantor’s “Beyond the Forest”--Jewish Presence in Eastern Europe 2004-2012. The work was performed over the summer for the International Jewish Cultural Festival in Krakow, Poland and in Lublin and for the POLIN Museum of Jewish History in Warsaw.

Hevreh Ensemble was formed in 2004, by Oboist Judith Dansker when Ms. Dansker was asked to organize a special Selichot concert for Hevreh of Southern Berkshire. Since that time, the ensemble has performed throughout the United States and Europe at such places as The Newport Chamber Music Festival, St. Gaudens National Historic Site, Northampton Center for the Arts, Harlem School of the Arts, The Hudson River Museum, Synagogue for The Arts- NYC, Hofstra University - Emily Lowe Art Gallery, The National Yiddish Book Center and St. Marks in the Bowery, NYC. They have performed concerts in Eastern Europe, where they presented concerts in the Czech Republic and Poland and were invited to perform in a Gala performance for the Spanish Synagogue in Prague. Their second CD: “Between Worlds” was released in July 2012 and their new CD: “Speed of Dark” will be released this coming summer.

Admission: Free with suggested donation of $10.
