Paul Kelly's remarkable new 11-song album "Spring and Fall" -- his 19th studio album and first collection of new material in five years -- ranks with the seminal Australian singer-songwriter's most memorable and resonant work, demonstrating why he's virtually a national hero in his home country and one of the most celebrated songwriters on the planet.
In a career that's spanned more than 30 years, Kelly has released a steady stream of albums showcasing his emotionally vivid, musically expansive songwriting and his uncanny ability to distill a novel's worth of narrative and character detail into an effortlessly melodic pop tune.

Thursday May 30th "Five Broken Cameras"

NE’IMAH JEWISH COMMUNITY CHORUS’ 21ST ANNUAL CONCERT
Sunday, Jun 2 - 7:30 pm, $15.00
"La Rosa Enflorese - The Rose Blooms - A Sephardic Music Celebration" with Guest Artist, Cantor Ramon Tasat
Mark your calendar! Come to celebrate with us and be entertained by a type of music offered in the Capital District only by the Ne'imah chorus.
For twenty-one years Ne'imah has served as the voice of Jewish choral music in the Capital District, exploring a rich musical heritage ranging from original works written by contemporary American and Israeli composers to choral arrangements of existing Jewish folk and liturgical music. This year, it is a privilege for our chorus to explore the richness of Sephardic music, the unique musical heritage of the Jewish people originating in Spain (Sepharad is the Hebrew word for Spain) in the Golden Age before the expulsion of Spanish Jewry in 1492. We've expanded our linguistic skills to tackle Ladino, the language of our ancestors who populated Iberia and then were scattered throughout the world. As you listen to this music, you'll want to dance to the rhythm of a traditional tango and fall in love again listening to love songs coming from the heart.
