She has traveled extensively to coach singers throughout the United States, France, Switzerland, Canada, England, Hungary, Bulgaria, Russia, Germany, Greece, Chile, Uruguay and Argentina. Voted Toronto's "Best Male Vocalist" in the Now Magazine's Reader's Poll, Ori Dagan was also named "Canada's Next Top Crooner" by CBC Radio 1. He was initially inspired to sing by Ella Fitzgerald's genius scat solos and spent nearly a decade studying jazz formally before releasing his debut album, "S'Cat Got My Tongue," which garnered critical acclaim for the singer's sense of musical adventure. JazzTimes called him "a budding Kurt Elling" and The Los Angeles Jazz Scene proclaimed that the album is "a major step forward for Ori Dagan, who in a few years will likely be very well known in the jazz world." On Dagan's new release, "Less Than Three (<3)" the vocalist explores new territory, including reimagined pop songs, standards, originals, with selections in his native tongue of Hebrew stirred into the mix.

Andrew Kober, Broadway's most beloved occasionally-employed actor (Les Miserables, Hair), muses on coming out, going in, gaining weight and getting thin. Previously seen at Joe's Pub, (le) Poisson Rouge, NYMF, and the Large Auditorium at Shaker Heights High School, Koberet returns to the New York stage for one night only (...for now...). Koberet 2014 may be even more exciting than the original phenomenon that took the Midwest by storm 12 years ago. It is the story of the life of Andrew Kober (thus far) set to original music by some of NYC's hottest young composers, as well as covers of classics by the likes of Billy Joel and Otis Redding. This latest incarnation will include many of the embarrassing and heart-warming tales from Andrew's childhood that audiences have come to know and love, as well as brand new material and musical moments. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll hear a story about a sex club in Paris.
