Barbra Streisand, First Concert in Israel

Grammy, Emmy and Academy Award-winning legend Barbra Streisand will perform for the first time ever in Israel this summer, on June 20th at Tel Aviv’s Bloomfield Stadium.

Taking place during Israel’s 65th anniversary year, Streisand’s first concert in Israel will be backed by a 60-piece orchestra and will feature duets with her son Jason Gould, sister Roslyn Kind and special guest trumpeter Chris Botti. The winner of eight Grammy Awards, five Emmy Awards and two Academy Awards, Streisand is one of the most commercially and critically successful entertainers of the past 50 years, with more than 140 million records sold worldwide.

Streisand is also expected to appear for a private performance at the annual Presidential Conference in Jerusalem in honor of President Shimon Peres’s 90th birthday two days prior to her concert. For tickets and more information, visit
