This explosive musical event is an interactive, multi-media celebration for Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day). The show features special guest stars, the legendary Manhattan Transfer, along with British entertainer Simon Spiro and JUNO-nominated singer Wendy Lands. These extraordinary vocalists are joined onstage by dancers and visiting Israeli jazz artists, and are accompanied by the Canadian All-Star Swing Orchestra. Award-winning cinematic footage and more surprises top it all off for a one-night-only theatrical evening of sensational musical entertainment!
The Manhattan Transfer has defied categories to win 10 Grammy Awards and sell millions of records worldwide. They continue to set the standards as one of the world’s most innovative vocal groups with their blend of pop, jazz, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, swing and a cappella. Founded by the late Tim Hauser in 1972, the group features Janis Siegel (alto), Alan Paul (tenor), Cheryl Bentyne (soprano), and newcomer Trist Curless (bass), who replaced Hauser following his passing in 2014. www.manhattantransfer.net
