JUNE 10-11, 2023- SACRED AND SUBLIME
ARIAN KHAEFI, SALLY & EINAR GALL CHORUS DIRECTOR, CONDUCTOR
Arian Khaefi takes the podium to conduct this program of rich choral and symphonic repertoire. We’ll open with R. Nathaniel Dett’s The Chariot Jubilee, a spell-binding oratorio that is “deep rooted in Spirituals and folklore.” We’ll then present Young Artists Competition winner from 2021, Ayrton Coehlo Pisco, as soloist in Mendelssohn’s gorgeous Violin Concerto. The program will conclude with Ernest Bloch’s monumental Avodat Hakodesh. Rarely performed, this epic sacred work for baritone, chorus, and orchestra represents the full maturity of Bloch’s music in the Jewish tradition.
