We would like to invite you to Wroclaw on 31st of August for the Havdal concert of the great Luxemburg singer Adrienne Haan.
Adrienne Haan, named the “First Lady of Cabaret” by Wolf Entertainment Guide in New York City and a “top-notch artist” by the Huffington Post, is one of the most electrifying singers, writers and producers of concerts and cabarets today. She has been an award-winning performer, touring steadily around the world with a diverse repertoire spanning the music of the 1920s and 1930s.
She excels in the styles of chanson, jazz, blues, klezmer and Broadway music, and also presents Hebrew songs and songs from various cultures and nations. She has been a guest at many festivals and has performed with the Cologne and Frankfurt Philharmonics, Jerusalem Symphony, Württemberg Philharmonie Reutlingen, WDR Symphony, Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks, Berlin Capital Dance Orchestra, among others. Her recent performances include concerts in the USA, Europe, Australia, China, Israel, Turkey and South America.
Tehorah, Hebrew for “pure,” is a poignant musical story of war, loss, hope, love and forgiveness. Composed of songs by Jewish composers and lyricists, sung in German, Yiddish and Hebrew. The Tehorah project is both a historical and poetic portrait and a sign of hope for peace among the nations. The concert was premiered at Carnegie Hall in New York.

His concert tours have taken him to 26 countries on four continents. With the three ensembles he founded, he played hundreds of concerts in clubs and at festivals, and released nine albums.
