    Dear Friends The theme of Belsize Square Synagogue music this season is L’dor Va dor. Each concert illustrates how we pass the baton of music making and love of music to our children and grandchildren. The next event on Sunday 14 May is an orchestral and choral concert focused on youngsters and featuring some of the most iconic and memorable music. Bring your children and grandchildren to be inspired, whilst enjoying hearing these works yourself. The Zemel Choir and the Wallace orchestral ensemble will not only perform from 6.30pm, but will welcome adults and children to join them for workshops all day. All those (about grade 6 and above - from the community or outside) wanting to play with a professional orchestra – join Wallace from 11.00 am and if you want to sing join Zemel at 2.00pm. You will get to perform with them in the final concert. A highlight last March was our concert welcoming the children of the Pestalozzi Street synagogue in Berlin and their joint concert with our own youth and other Belsize choirs. Who would have thought we could make such a meaningful connection? Our children have been to Berlin and this was a return visit. They now have firm friends in each city through our special music. What a moving and meaningful evening. Don’t miss the next one on 14 May. FAMILY CONCERT Do you enjoy the magic of music? Would you like to hear one of the best-loved stories in musical history? Then come to our family concert on Sunday 14 May. This short, child-friendly concert features favourite pieces for choir and orchestra, performed by the Zemel Choir and the Wallace Ensemble. Mendelssohn’s gentle Hebrides Overture conjures up the Scottish countryside, a place of magic and legend. Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf is a musical classic, a favourite of children all over the world, and a brilliant introduction to the world of orchestral music. This wonderful story will be narrated by Andy Greenhalgh, a professional actor and public speaking coach who has appeared on Eastenders, the Vicar of Dibley, and in both films and theatre productions. We will also introduce our audience to favourite Jewish melodies and grand compositions by famous composers. The concert begins at 6.30pm. Adult tickets are £15. Children under 10 are free. Family rates are available. www.benjaminwolf.co.uk; www.boybershop.co.uk. Download music at cdbaby.com (Belsize, Zemel and bOYbershop), or find us on Itunes.
