Our 70 member Tifereth Israel Community orchestra, conducted by David Amos, will present its next two concerts with a special celebration.

This is the world premiere of a composition exclusively written for our orchestra: Three Desert Dances from “Exodus”, by composer John Michael Luther. In three movements, it is a musical description of the Israelites’ departure from Egypt, according to the scriptures. The music takes us through the plagues, call to freedom, the breaking of the tablets at the foot of Mt. Sinai, and entering the promised land. The printed program will give the descriptions of each event. It is written in a dance-like manner, and the composer envisioned it as a future ballet interpretation.

This concert will also feature the talented San Diego pianist, Ines Irawati, playing one of the most exiting works of all the literature for piano and orchestra, Serge Prokoffiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3. The program will start with the melodious Roumanian Rhapsody No. 2 by Georges Enesco.

Tickets may be purchased at the door.
