By David Salazar

Tsitsit, the Jewish Fringe Festival will bring two Jewish-themed programs to Burgh House in Hampstead this November.

First up, the organization will showcase the first performance of Jeffrey Joseph’s “Five Yehuda Amichai Songs.” This showcase stars soprano Rebecca Lea and the Ismena String Quartet. The songs will set texts by Yehuda Amichai with themes focusing on the human condition, energy and vulnerability of children, and the end of love.

That concert will also feature a performance of Brahms’ String Quartet No. 2 in A minor.

Performance Date: Nov. 6, 2022

Next up is a recital starring mezzo Clara Kanter and pianist Ben Smith. They will feature a wide range of music set against a backdrop of a new film cantata by Alastair White.

Performance Date: Nov. 13, 2022
