Jean Sibelius gala concert at Israel Festival June 3
The gala concert is the culmination of our great cooperation with the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance during Jean Sibelius 150th jubilee year.
"The academic year included a number of projects centering around Sibelius' vocal, chamber and orchestral music. The concert at the Israeli Festival with the Mendi Rodan Symphony Orchestra together with the Jerusalem Academy's choirs, completes the creative picture of Sibelius and brings this year's activity into the symphonic realm with Snöfrid and the Violin Concerto. Finnish violinist Petteri Iivonen, represents the current generation of young, brilliant musicians, brought up in Finland's rich musical and cultural educational system" says Prof Yinam Leef, President of the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance.
