The Jewish Music of Leonard Bernstein presented by Flavio Chamis
November 3 , 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The Dor Hadash Adult Education Committee presents The Jewish Music of Leonard Bernstein presented by Flavio Chamis. Throughout his entire composing career, Leonard Bernstein steadily produced a number of Jewish inspired works. Judaism always permeated his life and work. His connection with Israel started before the foundation of the State, as the first concert he conducted with the Israel Philharmonic happened in 1947, when the orchestra was still called “Palestine Philharmonic Orchestra”. Flavio Chamis was a personal friend of Mr. Bernstein, having worked for him as a conducting assistant on several occasions. Mr. Chamis will share some of the exclusive personal recordings and mementos collected during the years of their friendship. The free event begins at 3 p.m. at Rodef Shalom Congregation.
