The Los Angeles Jewish Symphony (LAJS), lauded for its exploration of Jewish culture, presents EXALTATION! BIBLICAL STORIES THROUGH MUSIC, a performance celebrating music inspired by the Bible’s rich literary heritage, on Sunday, August 14, 2011, 7:30 pm, under the stars at the Ford Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. The concert, led by Artistic Director Noreen Green, features a variety of classical, film and musical theatre works. Among the guest artists are celebrated vocalist and two-time Grammy nominee Amick Byram and fifteen-year-old violin virtuoso Stephen Waarts, described by critics as “poetic,” “engaging” and “something special.”

“The Bible is a source of inspiration and tradition for many of the world’s religions,” says Green, who has brought neglected as well as new and familiar orchestral works on Jewish themes to the concert stage. “Our program celebrates the commonality of the Bible’s timeless and heroic stories of love and betrayal, of prophets and people, of kings and shepherds and of good and evil, which serve to link different religions and cultures together.”
