You’re in for a treat: This program is different from the usual concert fare. The musicians will perform music representing events and circumstances of the Exodus—with additional dramatic pieces broadly based around Passover themes such as redemption and renewal. You’ll hear moving selections by Handel, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Rossi, and other traditional favorites.
Featuring the musicians from Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra:
Noah Strick and Maxine Nemerovski, violins
Anthony Martin, viola
Paul Hale, cello
Farley Pearce, bass
Since its inception in 2015, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale’s Jews & Music initiative has taken audiences on journeys of discovery that deepen connections for Jews and non-Jews to historical, political and social contexts that inform the creation of music. Philharmonia is the only major American orchestra with a permanent initiative dedicated to exploring the relationship between Jews and music from the 17th to the 21st centuries.
