2018 is already here and we are so excited about all the amazing things we are planning for it.  But, before we tell you all about it, we wanted to reflect on 2017 and what a super year it was.
We started the year with a big showcase for the great David Brozaand his Friends. Over 1,000 people including presenters from performing arts centers from all over the world joined us for a two and half hour performance that included songs from his 40 year career with an all-star band and special guests that included:Shawn Colvin, Jay Beckenstein, Mira Awad, and Ali ParisIt was a huge success.

We then changed gears and introduced the American audience to the talented young Israeli singer/songwriter Idan Refael Havivin his first USA tour. Idan performed in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and New York with great success and we are looking forward to bringing him back for a much bigger tour.
Right after Idan Haviv we were proud to produce one of the most impressive, important, and emotional events we ever did. Working with the amazing organization Save a Child's Heart, we produced a benefit concert named "Symphony of the Heart". Hosted by the beautiful and talented Moran Atias, we featured the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony Orchestra, the talentedEmily Bear, Grammy Award winner Melissa ManchesterAli ParisLiel Kolet, the Keshet Chaim Dance Ensemble, and Israeli superstar Rita and her amazing and talented daughter Meshi. But, the true stars were all the doctors, nurses, and volunteers that make this amazing organization possible.  We are so proud to have produced this very successful event that benefits children with heart problems from all over the world regardless of ethnicity, religion, or color and flies them to Israel to receive free treatment.

In March we had a special treat with the angelic voice of Maya Avraham(of the Idan Raichel Project) with her band in shows in Los Angeles and Vancouver. Right after Maya we toured Idan Raichel with his solo piano concert in nine sold-out shows around the US.

At the end of March and beginning of April, after almost eight years, we brought back to the US the great Ivri Lider. The tour took him to New York, Palo Alto, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Boston, where he was received by an enthusiastic audience who sang every word of every song with him. But for us, the highlight of the tour was in Los Angeles where Ivri was reunited with his old friend and (former) keyboard player Idan Raichel. Together they performed a few of each other's songs in special arrangements to the delight of the surprised sold-out audience.

Toward the end of April, due to popular demand, Idan Raichel came back to the US with his solo piano show and in addition to many shows in performing arts centers he stayed for another week in May to help us celebrate Yom Ha'Atzmaut in Brooklyn, Cleveland, and Chicago. The great Israeli party band Ethnixalso joined the Yom Ha'Atzmaut celebrations at the Celebrate Israel

Festivals in Miami and Las Vegasand a super party in New York. We also produced the IAC New York Gala and the Celebrate Israel Festival in New York City for the third year in a row with thousands of community members enjoying fun activities and Israeli music and food. 
In September, we teamed up with City Winery in New York and presented a series of three Israeli shows: Aviv Geffen, Yuval Banai and Shlomi Bracha of Mashina, and Rami Kleinstein -- all sold out! Rami Kleinstein continued from NYC to do four other shows in the US including a prestigious Bel Air gala for the American Friends of the Hebrew University.

After several months of preparations with endless days, and sometime nights, on November 1st the entire (and extended) Teev team landed in Washington, DC to produce the IAC conference. And what a conference it was!!!! With state-of-the-art AV equipment and design, "A-List" speakers including US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley , strong emotional and extremely well-

produced films, and Miri Ben Ari, Duo Reim, Rami Kleinstein and Einat Sarouf,we put together the most successful and well-produced IAC conference to date. Four days and three nights, four plenaries, over 24 breakout sessions, Shishi Israeli, and a great after-party; everything went off without a hitch. I'm so proud of our team and thankful to the IAC for the opportunity to show what we can do.
We really wanted to take a big break after that conference and we surely earned it, BUT three days after the conference we was already on a flight to Toronto to produce the 100 Years to Hadassah WIZO Gala featuring Idan Raichel, and before flying from Canada to NYC we stopped in Montreal for an intimate concert.
On November 14th we produced the StandWithUs Gala in NYC with Lior Suchard and Idan Raichel and on the same day we also produced the

 Larger Than Life Gala in Miamifeaturing Yardena Arazi and her band. On November 15th we produced, for the seventh year in a row, the IAJF Annual Gala at the Lincoln Center -- this time at the David Geffen Hall -- with Governor Mike Huckabee as the keynote speaker and featuring Lior Suchard and Elon Gold.

Right before our Thanksgiving break we arrived in Dallas with our new artist, the talented and inspirational Neshama CarlebachOn Saturdaynight she performed a beautiful, inspiring, and emotional Bat Mitzvah service and on Sunday morning participated in a special church service with her band and her gospel Choir. We didn't know what to expect and were completely blown away. Neshama and her choir only did 2 songs but it was so powerful that 2,500 people X 3 (we had 3 services that morning) were crying with joy. This was a great example of the pure power of music and its ability to bring people together no matter their faith. Neshama took them higher and higher and inspired us to try to bring this message to as many people and places as possible in the coming years.

After a well needed Thanksgiving vacation we came back to finish the year with a bang, and what could be better than our favorite band Hadag Nahash. In five incredible shows, they made us all jump and dance and fall in love with their music all over again like only they can do. In Los Angeles, San Diego, and Washington, they were joined by Israel's "Best New Artist" Hanan Ben Ari and in New York, for the grand finale, they hosted Hanan Ben Ari and Israel's new singer and winner of "Best Song of the Year", Nechi Nech. It was so much fun that I really feel sad that it's over :).

But wait, we are not done yet. Remember how we started the year with a showcase for David Broza? Well the first results of it were a six-city tour for David Broza and Friends in Boston, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, New York, and the last show in Chicago on December 28th.

 It was one of the most beautiful shows we have ever produced.  Full of talented musicians, brilliant arrangements, funny stories and great songs, all woven together by David's virtuoso guitar playing into an inspiring experience that is much more than just another show.  I'm so looking forward to more (and there will be :) ).
So this was our 2017. We don't know how we can top it but we are all ready for the challenge. We promise that 2018 will be full with great artists, great shows, many events and conferences. But the most important thing is that we need many of you to continue to come and support our work as you always do. Thank you so much for reading, and thank you for your support. See you at our next event. 
Happy New Year!
