NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Well-respected, award-winning Christian recording artists are honoring Israel this spring in a gala benefit concert being hosted at Carnegie Hall by pianist Dino Kartsonakis and his wife Cheryl.

The special “Honoring Israel at Carnegie Hall” concert will take place at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2013, at the world famous venue. The event will feature performances, from the Philadelphia Boys Choir, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra, and The Christian Cultural Center Chorale as well as the musical talents of Robert Stearns, operatic tenor Daniel Rodriguez, and Grammy and Dove Award-winning singers Sandi Patty and Larnelle Harris.

“Anti-semitism is on the rise, and Israel is now surrounded by nations committed to her destruction,” world-famous piano artist Dino said. “Cheryl and I have always prioritized praying and working for the peace of Jerusalem. My friends, it is vital that we stand together.”

Robert Stearns, founder of Eagles’ Wings, and a global leader in Jewish-Christian relations, said, “The evening of music will celebrate our nation’s longstanding and unbreakable bond with Israel at one of Manhattan’s most prestigious venues.”

“There has never been a time in our nation’s history that our public and private bond with Israel has been more critical,” Stearns said. “With this historic concert, we hope to make it clear that New York stands with Israel.”

Proceeds from the event will go to feed hungry Jews, Arabs and Druze in Israel through humanitarian non-profit, “Hope for Zion” as well as to help build a prayer and study center in Migdal Arbel, Israel, whose mission is to cultivate a love and understanding for the people and nation of Israel.
