A Glimmer of Light–A tribute to Jewish composers

December 12, 2021 @ 7:00 pm

For this Zoom musical event, Sephardi Cantor Daniel Benlolo invites people to follow him on a journey of rediscovery of some of the Jewish singers and composers who inspired him, in this uplifting concert A Glimmer of Light – A tribute to Jewish composers. “We are delighted to offer this concert; audiences are drawn to Benlolo’s beautiful voice and charismatic personality,” said Roxana Brauns, Director of Cultural Programming at the library. Surrounded by musician friends, Benlolo will perform tunes from Leonard Cohen, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Samy Elmaghribi, Billy Joel, Carole King, Enrico Macias, Simon and Garfunkel, Theodore Bikel and Naomi Shemer. Benlolo has received a number of accolades including the Governor General Caring Canadian Award. The concert is co-organized by the Jewish Public Library and the Spanish & Portuguese Synagogue.

Benlolo’s passion for his work, music and the people he touches can be seen in the CBC documentary Just as I am, about the Shira Choir, an inclusive group of singers with developmental disabilities.
