South Berkshire Concerts: Hevreh Ensemble

Saturday, September 29

Daniel Arts Center - McConnell Theater


An exciting and innovative multi-media collaboration is being planned with Hevreh Ensemble and the photographer Loli Kantor. The project titled “Path of Light” includes original works by Hevreh member and composer Jeff Adler and a video projection that will incorporate images from Loli Kantor’s “Beyond the Forest” - Jewish Presence in Eastern Europe 2004 - 2012. The work will be performed in June for the International Jewish Cultural Festival in Krakow, Poland. The work will also be performed in Lublin and for the POLIN Museum of Jewish History in Warsaw.

Hevreh Ensemble was formed in 2004, by Oboist Judith Dansker when Ms. Dansker was asked to organize a special Selichot concert for Hevreh of Southern Berkshire. Since that time, the ensemble has performed throughout the United States and Europe at such places as The Newport Chamber Music Festival, St. Gaudens National Historic Site, Northampton Center for the Arts, Harlem School of the Arts, The Hudson River Museum, Synagogue for The Arts- NYC, Hofstra University - Emily Lowe Art Gallery, The National Yiddish Book Center and St. Marks in the Bowery, NYC. They have performed concerts in Eastern Europe, where they presented concerts in the Czech Republic and Poland and were invited to perform in a Gala performance for the Spanish Synagogue in Prague. Their second CD: “Between Worlds” was released in July 2012 and their new CD: “Speed of Dark” will be released this coming summer.

Admission: Free with suggested donation of $10.
