This Sunday morning’s musical programming kicks off with a special edition of Music for All Ages, with guest cellist Adrian Daurov. Adrian has performed at worship services and on our concert series in the past, and he returns on Sun Oct 5 to perform music associated with Yom Kippur. In addition to Max Bruch’s celebrated setting of the holiday prayer Kol Nidre, Adrian and Adam Kent will also team up in works from Ernst Bloch’s Jewish Life cycle for cello and piano. At 10am, Adrian and Adam will offer a special presentation on the cello, its unique sound, and common playing techniques.
CUC’s Choir will also be on hand to perform Mi Yitneni Of, a traditional Jewish melody, and the popular Spiritual Keep Your Lamps.
