The Israel Philharmonic, led by music director Lahav Shani, is set to perform in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday evening, the third night of Hanukkah.
The philharmonic will appear at the Emirates Palace, and is slated to perform Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 and Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23.
“Music is the universal language, and we are proud that the Israel Philharmonic and the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi have partnered for this historic cultural moment,” says Danielle Ames Spivak, CEO of the American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic.
