American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra
The Collegiate Chorale
announces an upcoming performance
KOL NIDRE (Arnold Schoenberg)
MECHAYE HAMETIM (Noam Sheriff)
Presented by American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra
October 25, 2012 at 7pm at Carnegie Hall
The Collegiate Chorale announces its encore performance with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra of Arnold Schoenberg's Kol Nidre and Israeli composer Noam Sheriff's Mechaye Hametim (Revival of the Dead), which they performed this summer at the Salzburg Festival. The October 25 performance will be the New York premiere of Mechaye Hametim.
Along with Grammy Award-winning baritone Thomas Hampson, Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient Yuja Wang and The Collegiate Chorale, tenor Carl Hieger joins the roster of participating artists in a unique program with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra at Carnegie Hall on October 25, 2012 at 7pm. The concert recently saw a program change: after the heartfelt response the IPO received for its performance at the Salzburg Festival in July, and front-page coverage of the concert in The New York Times, the Orchestra quickly restructured the October 25 program for Carnegie Hall. Arnold Schoenberg's Kol Nidre and the New York premiere of Noam Sheriff's Mechaye Hametim (Revival of the Dead)—two works performed in Salzburg—will bookend a concert that also features internationally celebrated pianist Yuja Wang performing Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1. This benefit concert is being generously underwritten by Adrienne Arsht. Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra will travel across the country with Yuja Wang, performing in New York, Palm Desert, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
Benefit tickets may be purchased by contacting American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra online or by phone at 212-697-2949 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Concert tickets may be purchased through Carnegie Hall's box office, website or by phone at 212-247-7800. (Tickets starting from $21.)
"Abetted by Mr. Hampson's tour de force, in which he also served as narrator in the Schoenberg and spoke and sang in the Sheriff, the evening's performances were everywhere excellent...The concert was greeted warmly, even clamorously..." — The New York Times
