Spring Concert 2014

On Yom Ha'atzmaut, Tuesday, May 6, 2014 / 2 Iyar 5774, Yeshivah of Flatbush held our annual Spring Concert event, which is a showcase for many of our high school's most talented musicians and vocalists to share their talents with a vibrant audience of peers and members of the faculty. Under the leadership of Senior Jack Mosseri, the concert proved to be a huge success, both musically and through technical execution. Key performances included songs by Blink-182, All Time Low and Paramore, with the core backing band of Jack Mosseri on lead guitar, Marc Barsano on bass and David Cohen on drums, as the driving force behind many of the numbers. Esty Fromer, Janet Chrem, Robert Harary, Sheila Mishan, Helen Shalam, Chloe Dweck and Merle Cohen, among others, energized the audience with outstanding vocal performances. Other highlights included a great cover of "When You Were Young," led by singer/guitarist Bob Husni, a freshmen band covering Blink-182 featuring Michael Catton, Ikey Benzaken and Raymond Betesh, effective rhythm guitar work by Joseph Mishan, and a hilarious karaoke medley performed by the duo of Victor Dweck and Joey Cohen. Sound and lighting effects were operated magnificently by Victor Dweck and Rashelle Gersh of the AV Squad, and Isaac Levi manned the video camera, while Ariel Elmann handled his role as MC with humor and panache. The faculty supervisor was Mr. Brian Katz. 
Spring Concert 2014/5774 was received very positively by the entire audience, further enhancing the excitement and enjoyment of an already special day. We look to expand and heighten the experience even more next year - get your bands, or other acts, together and start practicing for auditions TODAY!
