Ernest Bloch’s ‘Avodath HaKodesh’ย ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ–ฅ


March 29, 2023
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Stephen Wise Free Synagogue

Performed by the Manhattan School of Music Choral Ensemble and conducted by Elliot Roman

Swiss-American Jewish composer Ernest Bloch’s “Avodath HaKodesh” (sacred service) sets the bar for composers aspiring to elevate the language and flow of a synagogue service to the realm of the concert stage. The hourlong Hebrew oratorio โ€” the first and virtually the only one of its kind โ€” combines Shabbat morning liturgy usually sung by a baritone with a choir and full orchestra.

Stephen Wise Free Synagogue invites you to experience this transcendently beautiful, musically sophisticated service performed by a choral ensemble from the Manhattan School of Music and conducted by Elliot Roman. This performance will use a piano in lieu of an orchestra.

Tickets are available free of charge. Advance registration is required. This musical performance will also be livestreamed at swfs.org/live and on Facebook and YouTube.
