Internationally acclaimed performer Isaac Sutton will reunite with legendary Israeli composer Nurit Hirsh at The Tel Aviv Museum of Art on Friday, December 9th at 9:30PM. This special performance is part of their joint concert tour, marking Hirsh's 80th birthday celebration.

Their joint concert tour in Israeli theaters entitled "Israel Prize" began last August and has officially been extended once again due to high demand.

The show "Israel Prize", musically directed by Raviv Leibzirer, will celebrate The Israeli Songbook , saluting Israel Prize winners in the field of music and featuring some of the greatest Israeli show tunes of all time. The show will also include highlights from Sallah Shabati The Musical, one of the most successful Israeli musicals of all time ,composed by Israel Prize winner Nurit Hirsh.

Nurit Hirsh is one of Israel's foremost composers, arrangers and conductors. During her long and prolific career Nurit has composed over 1600 songs, including Oseh Shalom, Bashanah Haba'ah, The Policeman Azoulay, Perach Halilach, Rak BeYisrael and Abanibi.


Over the years, Nurit Hirsh has represented Israel in many prestigious music festivals around the world, as a composer, arranger and conductor. In 1973, her song Ei Sham placed fourth in the Luxembourg Eurovision Song Contest and in 1978 her song Abanibi won first prize in the Paris Eurovision Song Contest. The song was to become a big international hit, with versions in several languages.

Nurit's songs have also won first prizes in international song competitions in Japan, Chile, Brazil, and other countries.

In addition to her career as a popular songwriter, Nurit has also had success in the field of film, having composed the soundtracks to 14 films, including Hashoter Azulay, Lupo Melech Hakvish, Katz ve Karaso, and Meachorey Hasoragim.

Nurit composed the soundtrack for the movie "The Policeman" which won the Golden Globe Award in the Best foreign Film category in 1972. The film was selected among the 5 nominations for the Academy Award that year. Her song "Ballad for The Policeman Azoulay" from that film won "Best song of all time" in the Israeli film category by the Israeli Film Academy.

Nurit Hirsh's versatility as a musician is also evident in her theater work, namely the hit musical Sallah Shabati written by Ephraim Kishon, which had one of the longest runs at Habima, the national theater of Israel. Aside from composing the music, Nurit also conducted the orchestra during the entire run of the show for five years.
