Benefit Concert Offers ‘Golden’ Opportunity to Learn, Enjoy Opera

via Morristown Patch

OperaOne of the best things about living in Morristown and Madison – heck, really all of – New Jersey is access to world-class talent, at reasonable prices, minutes from home.  And free parking is nice too! 

All of this holds true for the benefit concert, The Golden Age of Opera, this Saturday night, 7:30 PM at Drew University’s Dorothy Young Center for the Arts, The Concert Hall.

Temple B’nai Or‘s cantor, Galit Dadoun-Cohen, has created a magical evening showcasing some of opera’s most famous pieces. The program is designed to introduce newcomers to the medium and yet thrill aficionados with compositions from Bizet, Mozart and more. In addition to singing as the alto soprano for the evening, she has assembled a group of exceptional musicians from NJ, NY and abroad.

Saturday night will celebrate Dadoun-Cohen’s love of opera, for which she is classically trained and practiced professionally before entering the cantorate, but is also a fundraiser for Temple B’nai Or of Morristown.  Proceeds from the concert will purchase a new piano for the temple’s sanctuary.

Dadoun-Cohen decided to hold the benefit concert as her 40th birthday approached.  “I was looking for a way to mark this important personal milestone by doing something that I love and also to give back to my congregation and my community.  My wish is that people will enjoy the evening and come away with a little better appreciation of opera as an art form.”

Tickets are on sale for $36 and can be purchased at: as well as at the door. For more informaiton visit:
