Orchestra of Exiles featuring the Kling Chamber Orchestra
March 30, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $12
The Louisville Jewish Film Festival has planned a special evening as a prelude to the arrival of the Israeli Philharmonic’s concert on April 1 in Louisville. We are excited to present, with the participation of The Temple, the Kling Chamber Orchestra with Daniel Spurlock as Conductor and Musical Director. This concert is performed in recognition of The Temple’s donation of rehearsal space for the Kling Orchestra for many years.
Following the short concert, the film Orchestra of Exiles will be presented in the Waller Chapel. This suspenseful documentary depicts how one man, Bronislaw Huberman, used his resourcefulness to rescue 70 of the world’s greatest musicians from Nazi Germany. In spite of resistance from Zionist officials, Huberman succeeded in creating one of the world’s greatest orchestras. This thrilling tale of escape is accompanied by an excellent musical score and contains interviews with Zubin Mehta, Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zukerman, Joshua Bell and more.
The grand finale of the evening will be a delicious reception, graciously sponsored by NCJW Louisville Section.
Tickets costs $12 in advance and can be ordered by calling 502-459-0660. Tickets cost $14 at the door.
