A concert featuring music of Sharon Farber On June 7th, 2009, Sharon's music was featured at a World Humanitarian Concert entitled "Kindred Spirits", to benefit the "Helfer International", an organization committed to sustainable solutions to end hunger and poverty. The concert featured 2 pieces by Sharon: "As You Walk With Me" to lyrics by Danny Israeli (Hebrew) and award winning Arthur Hamilton (English, who also wrote " Cry me A River"). The second piece is "God is One" with lyrics and music by Sharon. The pieces, which also featured Sharon on piano, presented 3 great soloists: Ilysia Pierec, Ilan Davidson and Ron Li-Paz, accompanied by The Jewish Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Noreen Green and a 100 piece Gospel Choir. In addition, Sharon's music featured the great Saxophone player Dave Koz. Sharon received standing ovations on both her pieces.

  • On June 13th, Director Gloria Greenfield presented the Los Angeles premier of the film UNMASKED- JUDEOPHOBIA, scored by Sharon. The film deals with the roots of anti-Semitism in the Christian and Islamic worlds and its effect on humanity. The moving and at times terrifying score accompanies the film and brings about an added dimension to this important and difficult issue. Ms. Greenfield has already asked Sharon to compose the music for her next film as well. www.unmaskedthemovie.com
  • Sharon's acclaimed piece, Translucent Rock, has been chosen to be performed by the Culver City Symphony Orchestra. The piece, commissioned by The Israeli Chamber Orchestra is originally written for chamber orchestra and was re- orchestrated for a full symphony orchestra by Sharon for the concert, which took place on 1/29/2011a. The historic concert was dedicated solely to Women Composers, many of them living and creating new music today.
