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 Bruchs Kol Nidrei as a young cellist and personally connecting with the Yom Kippur message. Amit’s effective personal narrative in conjunction with a selection of deeply moving works provokes a personal spiritual journey for each member of the audience.
