In honor of the 60th Anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel, the Harris Theater, 205 E. Randolph Drive in Millennium Park, presents the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, with principal conductor and scholar Leon Botstein. Since its founding, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra has prided itself on having an extensive repertoire, which not only revisits the masterpieces at the core of the classical canon, but also promotes the work of more recent composers from Israel and abroad. For this landmark performance, Botstein, a proponent of thematic programming, will lead the Orchestra in works by Ernst Toch, Miklós Rózsa and Aaron Copland, all of whom are known not only for their orchestral works, but for their work within the film industry. The concert will feature Symphony No. 3 from Aaron Copland, well-known for his film scores, including the film adaptations of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men and The Red Pony, and Academy Award winner for his score for The Heiress in 1949. The program will also feature Toch’s Big Ben Variations and internationally renowned and Grammy nominated violinist Robert McDuffie will join the Orchestra to perform Rosza’s Violin Concerto.
