On Sunday, April 23, 2017 at Temple Israel of Greater, Miami FANs were treated to Atonement: A Cantata by Martin David Levy.
Marvin David Levy was one of the United States’ most important composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Best known for his opera Mourning Becomes Electra (most recently heard at Florida Grand Opera), he was a multifaceted composer of music for all genres.
Atonement is a Cantata in three movements for chorus, orchestra, narrator, soprano and tenor soloists. Each of the three movements deals with a terrible yet seminal moment in the history of the Jewish people: the Holocaust, the Inquisition and the Masada uprising.
Orchestra Miami was conducted by Elaine Rinaldi, performing this dramatically beautiful and unforgettable music with two world-class soloists: Michael Hendrick, tenor; and Miami favorite Elizabeth Caballero, soprano.
This last, moving event of the Cultural Camaraderie season was hosted by Terri Mason and Susan Geisenheimer.
