Choral Arts Society, Philadelphia, PA, Dec 11, 2007

Choral Arts Society of Philadelphia presents:

This season's holiday concert will be more than a little unusual. Dedicated to the celebration of Hanukkah, it will combine music both old and new, taking us back to the 17th century, when the famous violinist and composer Salomone Rossi wrote the first polyphonic setting of the Shabbat Service. To complement the splendid ceremonial music of Rossi, Choral Arts has commissioned a Hanukkah Oratorio by internationally renowned composer David Ludwig. An ensemble of period instruments - recorders, baroque fiddles, sackbuts, lutes and percussion - will accompany this festive holiday concert. Bring the entire family!

Tuesday, December 11, 2007, 8 pm
Congregation Rodeph Shalom
615 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA

Wednesday, December 12, 2007, 8 pm
Temple Sinai of Dresher
1401 N. Limekiln Pike, Dresher, PA

There will be a pre-concert lecture 30 minutes before each performance.
