We start our 10th festival with a concert live broadcast from the St. Nikolaikirche in Potsdam. The first part of the concert consists of a series of settings of the “Adon Olam – Lord of the World”, a prayer poem from the 11th century, by various composers. A journey through the ages in the Jewish centers of Europe. Then follows the German premiere of “Shacharit” (Ella Milch-Sheriff, 2018) an oratorio for solo soprano and baritone, mixed choir and chamber orchestra, performed by the Synagogal Ensemble Berlin and the Berliner Symphoniker, Gabriel Loewenheim, Yasmine Levi-Ellentuck conducted by Gad Kadosh.

The grand final concert will be live broadcast from the beautiful Rykestraße Synagogue in Berlin. It is dedicated to Shabbat prayers from the evening and morning services, set to music by composers from different eras and Jewish centers around the globe. Performers include Cantor Isaac Sheffer, Cantor Gabriel Loewenheim, Cantor Isidoro Abramowicz, the Synagogal Ensemble Berlin, the Lewandowski String Quartet, Saxofonquadrat, Jürgen Geiger (Organist) conducted by Regina Yantian.
