Barbra Streisand is an American actress, singer-songwriter, director, screenwriter and film producer who has won two Oscars, three Golden Globe Awards and several Grammy Awards. She is one of the best known and most productive performers in modern entertainment history. She was the first female songwriter to win an Oscar with her song “Evergreen”. Besides her films and songs she is also well know for her own compositions.

In her concerts she conveys current ideas in philosophical depths and religious devotion, grating way beyond the simply musical experience. She has always been proud of her Jewish origins, in her film-musical entitled “Yentl” she presents the thoughts and traditions of Jewish religious life and draws on the faith of her ancestors. Her debut album, “The Barbra Streisand Album” was released 50 years ago, in 1963 and her film entitled “Yentl” came out 30 years ago. We would like to show our respect for her work with a symphonic-vocal concert comprising of two parts on the occasion of these two anniversaries where we pick and choose from her songs and life-work.

Remarkable and well known songs will be presented by excellent Hungarian singers and the Stúdió 11 Band that celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. We expect to have a very emotional atmosphere within the walls of the Synagogue, where the message of the songs will be enhanced by the location and thanks to the special instrumentation of the band the audience can expect a unique musical experience.

The three popular singers who also stood on one stage together for the operetta entitled “Rebecca – the Lady of the Manderley House” signed by Szilveszter Lévay are going to perform together again singing the world famous songs of Barbra Streisand.
