LA Jewish Symphony Presents 25th Anniversary Gala & Concert
The Los Angeles Jewish Symphony will celebrate its milestone 25th anniversary on Sunday, April 7, with a Gala and Concert, featuring highlights from the orchestra's signature repertoire. The evening will also include performances by longtime friend of the LAJS, actress Tovah Feldshuh, and two stars of the classical / new music world: soprano Hila Plitmann (hailed as radiant by the Los Angeles Times) and pianist/composer Emily Bear whose performance was also praised by the Los Angeles Times—“her fingers blazed across the piano keys and left the room full of considerable talent all but speechless.”
Under the continuing leadership of Artistic Director and Conductor Noreen Green, the LAJS was founded in 1994. It has been hailed by the Los Angeles Times as an orchestra different from all other orchestras and is the only symphony orchestra outside of Israel dedicated to the performance and preservation of orchestral works of distinction that explore Jewish culture, heritage and experience. The LAJS is dedicated to building bridges of understanding via music throughout the diverse community of Southern California.
This celebration is a dream come true for me, said Dr. Green. It has been a joy to share great Jewish music with our community for the past twenty-five years, and I look forward to continuing the tradition for many years to come.
