About the Concert

From the craggy rocks of the Scottish islands in Mendelssohn’s overture to Respighi’s triumphant trumpets of ancient Rome, join us as we explore four exotic musical landscapes. Commemorate the 50th anniversary of Bloch's death with local virtuoso Ronald Mutchnik in an exploration of Chassidic life, and then hear the premiere of Albert Hurwit’s winning work in the orchestra’s fourth American Composer Competition, inspired by his family’s migration during the Jewish Diaspora and the Holocaust. Don’t miss our pre-concert lecture with the composer in attendance!

Featuring the winner of the American Composer Competition, Albert Hurwit.
