Founded in 1950, the Haifa Symphony has recently become the focal point of musical life in Israel, expanding its activities throughout the country. This popular orchestra has built an impressive and loyal following, and is renowned throughout its homeland for its support of Israeli composers, soloists, and conductors.
Under the baton of Boguslaw Dawidow, the orchestra brings a spectacular evening of music that includes Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G minor and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 in E minor From the New World, as well as Israeli composer Uri Bracha's Melodies for Mount Carmel.
