This year, the rich program of the Abu Ghosh Music Festival includes nine concerts that will satisfy audiences of varied tastes. It features Purcell’s opera Dido and Aeneas, as well as the Israeli debut of the renowned Ukrainian choir Oreya, performing two programs that range from Ukrainian and Moravian folk songs to Bach, Rachmaninov, Poulenc and Rimsky-Korsakov.

The Hallelujah concert is a tribute to Leonard Cohen, featuring Hadas Faran-Asia.
