The Jewish Federation presents “Bach to Broadway” on March 21 featuring cellist Gabriel Schwabe.

Jewish Federation of the Desert, headquartered in Rancho Mirage, will once again present an evening of Israeli musical entertainment and culture for the community when it presents “Bach to Broadway” on March 21 from 7 to 9 p.m.

This two-part concert will be performed at the Indian Wells Theatre on the Palm Desert campus of Cal State San Bernardino, and will feature the artistry of four Israeli performers, including Asi Matathias on violin, Victor Stanislavsky on piano, Gabriel Schwabe on cello, and Singer Omer Shaish.

A program of classical music will be performed by Matathias and Stanislavsky in the first segment, followed by a mix of Sinatra, Broadway, and Yiddish music performed by Schwabe and Shaish in the second segment.

“When we hosted this event last year to showcase the amazing talent of these young Israeli artists, we had an overwhelming response and interest from the community,” said Bruce Landgarten, CEO of Jewish Federation of the Desert.  “We are delighted to be able to bring these performers back again to our Coachella Valley to showcase their musical expertise.”

Media sponsors include Coachella Valley Beacon, Valley Woman, Palm Springs Life, Money Radio 1200, and Team 1010 KXPS.

The Jewish Federation of the Desert works with hundreds of local, national, and international partner agencies to transform lives and deliver hope, dignity, and comfort to thousands of people here, in Israel, and around the world.

For 75 years, the America-Israel Cultural Foundation has played a leading role in the development of Israel’s arts and culture. The foundation has been cultivating Israel’s future artistic leaders by identifying and nurturing Israel’s top emerging artists and furthering their education and careers through scholarships and grants.
