MUSIC MONDAYS



Dear Gabriele -



The celebrations of these winter holidays bring to mind  the wonderful musicians and their music that we enjoyed together in this past year and how we can look forward to the light, love and joy of  performance that Dranoff2 will bring to the stage in 2023.

  

This day mark the beginning of Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights. Hanukkah means “dedication” in Hebrew. The eight-day holiday celebrates the rededication of the Temple of Jerusalem after it was retaken by the Maccabees, a group of Jewish warriors, from the Greeks in the second century BCE.


Millions of Jews worldwide prepare for the eight-day celebration, which started yesterday at sundown, so let us share music and poetry to honor and jubilate the holiday and its origins.


As Hanukkah means “dedication”,  Dranoff2 rededicates our mission to present the top classically trained musicians and artists in traditional and contemporary high art from a world of diverse heritage and grand entertainment.

 


Please join us in this moment, and in the next season.



Warmly, 


Gabriele Fiorentino

LIGHT

by 

Rabindranath Tagore


Light, my light, the world-filling light,

the eye-kissing light,

heart-sweetening light!


Ah, the light dances, my darling, at the center of my life;

the light strikes, my darling, the chords of my love;

the sky opens, the wind runs wild, laughter passes over the earth.


The butterflies spread their sails on the sea of light.

Lilies and jasmines surge up on the crest of the waves of light.


The light is shattered into gold on every cloud, my darling,

and it scatters gems in profusion.


Mirth spreads from leaf to leaf, my darling,

and gladness without measure.

The heaven's river has drowned its banks

and the flood of joy is abroad.

 





PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A TAX-DEDUCTIBLE YEAR END GIFT TO

THE DRANOFF2.
