My name is Christofer Timur Pashkevich and tonight I saw your wonderful concert that took place in the Immanuel Church! You were incredible! I loved the artistry, the choreography and your exceptional singing! I am sorry to admit that I was late; however, you immediately conquered me with your multilingual performance! Since I speak Russian natively, I was very surprised to hear a fluent Russian accent in your performance! I hope to see you in the Church many times again! Good luck and God bless you all!
Yesterday’s concert in the Immanuel Church, in Jaffa, was a celebration from beginning to end. The finish was especially spectacular, a treat in every way!
I was hoping it would never end…
I would really like to comment on some details, which I noticed, have turned this event into such an enriching experience for me!
Firstly, the charming young singers, whose singing was absolutely divine. The tremendous work on various details of the performance is vivid. The clarity, unity and emotion that the girls projected simply amazed me. The women, non the less – their singing was so deep and warm! I haven’t heard such singing in a long time: in a-capella and with Alex’s charming accompaniment on the piano. Moreover, the young and talented percussionists added a very special touch and authenticity to the whole performance – an impressive combination, in my opinion.
And last but not least, movement and choreography, which contribute so much to the visual effect! All the movements had their integral place and clearly contributed to the singing. And you stand above all that! And it is your prize as a conductor!
I can only imagine the kind of hard work this must have been: such a varied and rich program, with difficult adaptations and furthermore, an absolutely perfect outcome. After all, the audience around me was really impressed and kept admiring every single piece.
Wishing you much success in the future – you deserve the best there is.
