Violinist Mishory, Marjorie Gordon
to Star at Community Israel Event

Shimon Mishory, concertinas-
ter of the Tel Aviv Symphony
Orchestra who was recently fea-
tured in a concert in New
York's Carnegie Hall, and Mar-
jorie Gordon, lyric-coloratura
soprano, will be the featured
artists in the Detroit Celebra-
tion of the 11th anniversary of
Israel's Independence, which
will be held at 8 p.m., May 12,
at the Ford Auditorium.
Announcement of their ap-
pearance was made by Law-
rence W. Crohn, president of
the Jewish Community Council
of Metropolitan Detroit, and
Morris Lieberman, Chairman of
the Zionist Council of Detroit,
who serve as co-chairmen of the
Joint Committee of the two
organizations, which is arrang-
ing the community-wide affair.
Colorful pageantry, a dra-
matic presentation and Israeli
dances will add to the festive
tone of the program in celebra-
tion of Israel's independence.
The event, presented annually
by the Joint Committee, is the
high point of Detroit's cultural
activities.

began his musical career at the
age of seven. He studied violin
with a number of Israel's great
musical personalities, including
Jariv Esrachi, Andreas Weiss-
gerber, E. Partos and P. Ben-
Haim.
During the War of Independ-
ence, he served . in the Israeli
Defense Army where he or-
ganized and conducted the
famous Givati Brigade Sym-
phony Orchestra, which was
popular not only among the
Israeli military units, but with
civilians as well, who flocked
to hear their concerts. Mishory
later studied with Pierre Mon-
teux.
Presently on leave from the
Kol Israel and Tel Aviv Sym-
phony Orchestra, he served in
these organizations both as con-

certmaster and conductor. He
has been featured • as soloist
with the Swiss Romande Or-
chestra, the Vienna Radio Or-
chestra, and London BBC. He
has also made concert tours in
