It’s not every day the artistic worlds of Israel and Atlanta collide but it’s happening on Saturday, Nov. 8, at 8 p.m. at SCADShow.

Born in Tel Aviv, Yoni Rechter (born Yonatan) started playing the piano at seven years old. He is now hailed as one of Israel’s greatest musicians. In fact, the world-class composer, pianist and singer’s career spans more than four decades including everything from classical to rock to pop to jazz. There’s even some Beatles-inspired music incorporated in Rechter’s compositions. “Another Story,” his most recent studio album, is a romantic collection with soft melodies sure to soothe the ear.

Teaming up with TEEV Productions, Rechter is once again touring the world and bringing the splendid sophistication of Israel to America. With unique compositions, soulful performances and moving music, the highly sought-after musician is sure to perform a once-in-a-lifetime show that will transcend generations and countries. Come experience another world as Rechter and his band play a variety of the music that’ll leave visitors desiring more melodies from faraway lands. The concert promises to be original, sophisticated and unexpected.

Tickets to the show are free for SCAD cardholders and range from $35 to $65 for the public. Parking is available next to SCADShow on Juniper Street for $7 and can be validated before and after the show. Check out the event page for more information.
