Join the Jerusalem Street Orchestra and Yaron London in their online performance of The Soldier’s Tale (L’histoire du Soldat) by Russian composer Igor Stravinsky.
Founded in 2013, the Jerusalem Street Orchestra is a classic chamber orchestra comprised of talented performers, graduates of Jerusalem’s Music Academy. The orchestra’s mandate is to make classical music accessible to new audiences, to enrich the public arena with high-quality culture, and to provide a stage for Jerusalem’s young creators and musicians, led by director Ido Spitalnik, an AICF grant recipient.
The orchestra performs in open-air public spaces, presenting concerts that combine classical music with orchestral arrangements of popular music. It has participated in many music festivals, such as the Israel Festival, the Jerusalem Theatre’s “End of the Summer” festival, the Jerusalem Season of Culture’s “Tuk Tuk” festival, the Jerusalem International Film Festival, the “Sounds of Music in the Desert” festival, and many more.
The orchestra has also collaborated with local artists, including singer-songwriter Arkadi Duchin in his “There is Love Within Me” show; Yaron London, who narrated his translation of “L’histoire du Soldat” and “Le Carnaval des Animaux”; Salamanca’s rendition of the movie “The Dybbuk”; Hadas Balas, Michael Greilsammer, and many more.
