German Choir, Laudamus Te to Perform in Israel for Fellowship

25 August, 200925 August, 2009 2 comments Music Music

Laudamus Te (We praise you), the German orchestra and choir founded and directed by Monica Meira Vasques, will visit Israel in September for three free performances of the Oratorio Saul, composed by Handel in 1738; 10 September at Kfar Blum in the Galilee; 11 September in Ein Gedi near the Dead Sea and 12 September in the Church of the Redeemer in Jerusalem. The celebration marks the 250th anniversary of the death of composer George Fridiric Handel 250 years ago. 


One of the primary goals of this joint German-Israeli project, the fourth musical collaboration under Ms. Vasques, is to use the common language of music to develop and maintain friendships with the Jewish people. 


The Oratorio Saul closely follows the Biblical narrative of the relations between David and Saul. The open air concert on 11 September will take place at 21:00 at the Ein Gedi resort, a short distance from the cave in which David hid from King Saul.


The concert will feature 60 musicians, including the Choir and Orchestra Laudamus Te from Stuttgart, guest musicians from the Jerusalem Rubin Academy of Music and Dance and soloists from Israel, Germany and Brazil, conducted by Monica Meira Vasques.

    These concerts are NOT free. The Redeemer Church in Jerusalem charges NIS 80.00 for admisssion (NIS 50.00 for students). Let's hope it's a good performance.
