Bring Him Home from Les Miserables (Vanessa Naghdi, Soprano)
This is the finale from the Generations United (fund raiser) Concert at Congregation Mishkan Torah in June 2013. From left to right: Tenor #1 is the son of Tenor #3, both are professional musicians. Tenors #2 and #4 are fine amateurs, and are respectively, a retired attorney and up and coming young songster. The piano is a late 1920′s Mason & Hamlin restored by Jim Colwell (http://www.JamesColwell.com/ ). The page turner is my wonderful wife, Christine Kraus.

In Lithuanian with English subtitles.
Riuka’s film, with score by Israeli composer, Erez Henya, celebrates the ritual of the bride on her first anniversary “trashing the dress”. Filming was done on location in Lithuania; the composer worked out of his home in Israel joining me and the singer by Skype in our locations, respectively, in the USA and Lithuania.
