The Israeli orchestra regularly tours the world and gives more than 130 performances each year in Israel alone. The San Diego performance is part of an eight-city tour.
The orchestra was founded in 1936 and grew as many of Europe’s top musicians fled Nazism. During Israel’s war for independence, orchestra members traveled in armored cars to play in a besieged Jerusalem.
The performance at 8 p.m., Nov. 12, will include “Journey to the End of the Millennium” by the Georgian-born Israeli composer Josef Bardanashvili, Ravel’s “La Valse, Poème Chorégraphique” and Beethoven’s grand and revolutionary Symphony No. 3, “Eroica.”
Tickets are $30-$105 and are available at 858-459-3728 or online at www.LJMS.org.
