The FSO and JCCNV collaborate to create a new chamber music series at the JCCNV featuring renowned artists in an intimate concert setting.

This powerful and compelling program follows renowned cellist Amit Peled’s personal, musical, and spiritual journey. From his childhood growing up in a small kibbutz in Israel and listening to his mother singing the traditional tune ‘Eli Eli,’ to playing Max Bruch’s Kol Nidrei as a young cellist and personally connecting with the Yom Kippur message. Amit’s effective personal narrative in conjunction with a selection of deeply moving works provokes a personal spiritual journey for each member of the audience.
