By | June 11th, 2015|Categories: Concert|

Dear Ramón, I hope this email finds you and Roanne very well. I’m writing as Chair of Arts and Culture for this coming Limmud Conference in December 2015. I would be delighted if you were able to present there Your performances and workshops were so well received last time you came to Limmud, that we’re keen to have you back, especially as lots of participants will not have heard you before. This year, the Conference will take place in a venue just outside Birmingham, from 27th – 31st December (after Shalshelet!), with a pre-Conference Shabbat on 25th – 26th December. You would be very welcome to join us for the whole of the Conference and to present a number of sessions, including concerts. You would receive a full Conference place – accommodation, supervised kosher meals and access to all Conference sessions, return economy flights to the UK, and local transportation to and from the Conference site. I’m sorry that, as you know, we are not able to offer payment for your session but I am confident that you will be rewarded by your experience of participating. I do hope that you will accept this invitation and please feel free to ask me any questions you may have. All good wishes, Penny […]
