Review: The Voice of Music Festival Kfar Blum July 16-19

There can’t be many more delightful settings than Kfar Blum for a classical music festival. Over the weekend we toed and froed between the various venues, crisscrossing the sprawling lawns of the Pastoral Hotel as we made our way between the hotel’s Symphony Hall, Bet HaAm on the kibbutz, and the comfortably appointed nearby Clore Center.

With each passing year it seems that artistic director and cellist Zvi Plesser manages to stretch the program hinterland into ever-widening domains. Families and junior music fans are definitely becoming a major target, as indicated by the delightful performance of David Grossman’s Itamar Meets a Rabbit.
