After another successful season, the 16th annual Louisville Jewish Film Festival will conclude with a special, season-extra evening of orchestra music and film at 7 p.m., Sun., March 30 at The Temple, 5101 US 42.
The Kling Chamber Orchestra will play a concert with Daniel Spurlock, music director of The Louisville Chorus, who will serve as conductor and musical director for the evening. The Kling Chamber Orchestra is an all-volunteer, community chamber orchestra with 20 members who have been playing in Louisville for more than 30 years.
Following the short concert, the film Orchestra of Exiles will show in the Waller Chapel. This suspenseful documentary depicts how one man, Bronislaw Huberman, used his resourcefulness to rescue 70 of the world's greatest musicians from Nazi Germany. In spite of resistance, Huberman succeeded in creating one of the world's greatest orchestras. This thrilling tale of escape is accompanied by an excellent musical score and contains interviews with world-renowned historians and musicians.
The evening serves as a prelude to the Israeli Philharmonic's concert in Louisville on April 1.
The grand finale of the evening will be a delicious reception graciously sponsored by National Council of Jewish Women, Louisville Section.
