In the evening, we sat in for the HaZamir Israel rehearsal. We know Lior and Sima from when I,Ana was in HaZamir Bergen. We love this group because Lior works so hard with them. They were working on a piece for Gala and a piece that Lior arranged from Mamma Mia. It was a ridiculous arrangement in at least 7 parts. I can't wait to hear it in March. This chapter not only learns the regular material for Gala, but also the Chamber Music and their own set of music. They are the premier group. I hope to incorporate some conducting ideas I learned from Lior.
Wednesday we spent the morning the Leo Baeck Education Center. What a fascinating campus and program. I'll write about them in my next blog. If I moved to Israel, I would want to work there.
Until the next blog....
