Barak Realty owner trumpets the start of the holidays at Christmas services.

After an explosively successful year at his Upper West Side boutique real estate firm, Barak Realty, Barak Dunayer will unwind over the holidays playing a classical trumpet performance for crowds at Christmas church services.

This successful, 32-year-old Israeli native will venture north from his Upper West Side neighborhood to Nanuet, New York, on December 24-25 where he will impress crowds at St. Anthony's with Christmas Eve and Christmas Mass performances. This marks his fifth Christmas performance there.

"Over the past five years I've developed a following at St. Anthony's," says Dunayer. "People look forward to my appearances and that's very rewarding. I'm proud to share my passion with others."

The trumpet is what draws a crowd to Dunayer's performances; but, like any entrepreneur with business on the brain, he might slip a few business cards to his fans. He sees this an opportunity to combine his two passions by brightening people's holiday with music and putting their real estate concerns to rest for the New Year. "You never know when someone may be interested in selling their suburban home and moving to the big city," explains this tireless real estate broker.

Dunayer originally came to the United States from Israel 12 years ago to study music at Juilliard, where he earned a bachelor of music. Dunayer honed the passion, drive and perfectionism he now puts into his real estate business, with his first career playing trumpet with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic. He also performed for the world renowned Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in such operas as Aida, Tournadot and La Boheme.

When Dunayer's own standards of perfectionism led him to feel he would "never be the very best" at music, he opted to go into real estate, where he knew he could be a successful player in the booming New York real estate scene.

Next week, "Barak" will perform an enlightening performance at Midnight Mass on December 24 and on December 25 at 9 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. services at St. Anthony's located at 36 West Nyack Roadin Nanuet, New York.
