For the third year running, an evening of musical delight

The Malki Foundation’s Third Annual Rainbow of Music concert at the Jerusalem Theatre on the night of April 6, 2014 was - again - a wonderful, sell-out success and an artistic tour de force

Click here to view a 5 minute video of the unforgettable night's highlights. They include the unannounced appearance of Australia's former prime minister, Julia Gillard who delighted the audience with the self-deprecating humour and sincerity of her very encouraging brief speech.

And click here to view a slideshow describing the Malki Foundation's day-after-day-after-day work - that was projected onto the stage screen during the intermission of the concert a year earlier (for technical reasons, there was no such slideshow this year). It's a few minutes of highly focused attention on inputs and outputs, little-seen but invaluable to the people who benefit, and bound to offer some surprises to even the most loyal of Keren Malki supporters.

For highlights of the two prior Keren Malki Rainbow of Music events, click here for 2013, and here for some of the most stirring of the performances in the 2012 event (including Oseh Shalom Bimromav, and Malki's Song).
