The Israel Philharmonic
Event Date and Time:
December 14, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Witness the brilliance of The Israel Philharmonic! At this historic concert, Lahav Shani makes his Arsht Center debut as the first new music director in over four decades and the first Israeli native at the helm.
The world-class ensemble returns to the Arsht Center with an inspiring program of Sergei Prokofiev music. The evening opens with Symphony No. 1, one of the composer’s most popular and beloved works. It continues with select movements from Romeo and Juliet, an orchestral suite reflecting animosity and rivalry, love and passion, grief and mourning. The concert closes with Symphony No. 5, patriotic music void of cynicism that Prokofiev said he “conceived as a symphony of the greatness of the human spirit.”
One hour prior to this performance, join us in the Peacock Education Center for Classical Conversations, an exciting, behind-the scenes look at this performance led by Scott Flavin.
