Galit Klas is a “singer, entertainer, performer,
personality with a mixed bag of cultural influences”, according to her own description, but this hardly begins to describe her.
The mere mention of the name ‘Galit’ elicits a delighted exclamation and smile from a growing number of admirers.
As well has possessing a special mezzo voice and innate artistry,
she is a born performer, with a natural gift for communication.
After the success of her one-woman show Edith and Marlene, written especially for her by Alan Kogosowski, in which she conveyed the passion, conviction and sincerity of ‘The Little Sparrow’, while at the same time telling the story of her sisterly friendship with Marlene Dietrich, she now does the same with the close mother-daughter relationship of another pair of legendary singers, Judy Garland and daughter Liza Minnelli.
Alan Kogosowski has been described by The Times of London as “a pianist of grand panache”, the Chicago Sun-Times as “a Master”, while The New York Times classed his television series on the life and music of Frederic Chopin as “outstanding”. The American Record Guide said his best-selling recording of Rachmaninoff with the Detroit Symphony “goes straight to the top of our list”. Alan became a favorite of the Royal Family, especially Princess Diana and the Queen Mother. He has written major books on Chopin and the art of the piano. In 1999 Alan was awarded a medal from the Vatican for his many concerts on behalf of charitable causes. He is an incurable film buff and a fan of Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, Edith Piaf, Marlene Dietrich, and Galit Klas, with whom he has collaborated to create ‘Edith and Marlene’ and ‘Liza and Judy’.
