Hi <<First Name>>
A very Merry Hanukkah and a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one without any Covid 

There's no better way to celebrate the holiday season than with music and we are thrilled to recommend the following concerts taking place in Melbourne and Sydney that are also being livestreamed around Australia and the rest of the world. So wherever you are, and whether you are celebrating Hanukkah, Chrismukkah or Festivus, there is so much music to enjoy! 


All the best Xmas songs? ... Written by Jews of course! 
Alma Zygier Presents: A Very Jewish Xmas is  live streaming from Melbourne’s JazzLab on the evening of December 15
 Alma Zygier has made a reputation as one of Melbourne’s finest singers and will be performing with her family - mother Deborah Conway, father Willy Zygier, sisters Syd & Hettie and a wonderful band of Melbourne’s finest. This is the third year, it’s now an institution on the calendar and live tickets are sold out but this is a chance for people all over Australia to be part of this show.
