Amit Peled’s Journey with Jewishness
Hosted By: Congregation Beth Shalom (Northbrook, IL)
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 explores the ups and downs of life and the desire to balance tradition, identity, and self-expression.
Israeli-American cellist, conductor, and pedagogue Amit Peled, a musician of profound artistry and charismatic stage presence, is acclaimed worldwide as one of the most exciting and virtuosic instrumentalists on the concert stage today.
