“Don’t End it on a Minor”
Feb 25 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Marina Kantor’s one act, one woman show is a classical piano theatrical performance that takes you on a journey through the history of the Israeli National Anthem Hatikva, a melody of just 25 notes. Marina combines her formal Russian musical training with an international vision of history and art that makes this one woman show a one of a kind preformance.

Proceeds from the United States premier of “Don’t End It On A Minor” will be donated to Cindy’s College Crew Fund, Congregation Beth Israel, to honor the memory of Cindy Polger, who loved creating and maintaining Jewish connection.
