Join Maestro Joshua Jacobson and the Zamir Chorale of Boston for a celebration of well-known works and hidden gems by Israel’s greatest composers, including Yehezkel Braun’s dramatic “Magash Ha-kesef,” Naomi Shemer’s mystical “Shirat Ha-asavim,” Gil Aldema’s joyous “Ashira Liydiyday,” Moshe Wilensky’s exuberant “Uri Tsiyon,” and a rollicking arrangement of Marc Lavry’s “Shir Ha-Emek.” The evening culminates with the world premiere of Cantor Charles D. Osborne’s stunning oratorio for chorus and orchestra, Like Wildflowers, Suddenly, based on the poem “Wild Peace,” by Israeli poet Yehudah Amichai.
