One of the IPO’s first concerts of the family series this season was a festive performance on Purim. Attendees and several orchestra members donned costumes and paraded in the lobby. Following that was a concert of lively pieces from musicals and movies. It was a wonderful day of tradition, music and fun.
Last week 15 orchestra members participated in a special production of Prokefiev’s whimsical Peter and the Wolf at the Ganei Tikva cultural center. Several musicians performed in costume to the narration of actor and singer Guy Manheim. Over 1,800 children in first and second grade, from the Bar Ilan University Institute, were enchanted by this unique experience.
