Souls on Fire
Sunday, May 6, 4:00 p.m.
Celebrated by critics as “stunning, impassioned and beautifully conceived,” Souls on Fire is an oratorio by Charles D. Osborne that brings to life the stories of the founders of European Hasidism, a movement that created a revolution in the Jewish world. It mingles the joy which is Hasidism with Elie Wiesel’s memories of the Holocaust.
The Ansche Chesed performance will feature a collaboration between two choirs, Shirei Chesed Community Chorus and JTS’s H. L. Miller Cantorial School Choir, both directed by Hazzan Natasha Hirschhorn, Ansche Chesed music director and JTS faculty member. The performance features solos by H. L. Miller Cantorial School student Gil Ezring and faculty member Hazzan Gerald Cohen, among others.
