The Piano Guys' "A Family Christmas" At The Palace Tonight

  

  Hailing from Utah, The Piano Guys became an Internet sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos. They've made over 35 since joining forces in early 2011, including their hit video, an innovative 10-handed version of One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful."

Following the success of The Piano Guys' first two major label releases, "The Piano Guys" and "The Piano Guys 2," the group released their holiday album, "A Family Christmas" last year. "A Family Christmas" puts The Piano Guys' signature twist on such Christmas classics as "Silent Night," "Good King Wenceslas" and "Angels We Have Heard On High."

They will be at The Palace in Albany, NY tonight.

Dinah Berland And 'Hours Of Devotion' At Congregation Shaara Tfille

    Fanny Neuda was a rabbi's wife living in Moravia in the 1800's. She wrote a book of prayers from a women's perspective, for women to recite on all the occasions of their lives that might require prayer. Dinah Berland happened upon a volume in a used bookstore when she was experiencing her own crisis of faith. The words brought her comfort and an answer to her prayers. She then translated the book into English, in a prose format and it was published in 2007.

Dinah Berland, editor of Hours of Devotion: Fanny Neuda's Book of Prayers for Jewish Women will be at Congregation Shaara Tfille in Saratoga Springs, NY on Sunday, December 7.
