Two temples present classical concerts

Two area temples will be hosting music of great substance.

Har Sinai Congregation celebrates 65 years on Park Heights Avenue with a concert featuring the Chesapeake Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Jeffrey Silberschlag. The program, sponsored by the Peggy and Yale Gordon Trust, has a 20th/21st century flair. Ernest Bloch's Spring and Darius Milhaud's The Creation of the World are slated, along with Simon Lazar's The Hands of Time for oboe and strings (with soloist Vladimir Lande) and Vivian Adelberg Rudow's Clouds of Memories, a work that incorporates reminiscences of Har Sinai by congregants.

The concert is at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Har Sinai, 6300 Park Heights Ave. Admission is free.

The next night, a little farther out on the same street, Handel's stirring Jephtha, the last of his grand biblical oratorios, will be performed by the Handel Choir of Baltimore. The performance, led by guest conductor Paul Traver, is at 7:30 p.m. on April 10 at Beth El Congregation, 8101 Park Heights Ave. Tickets are $14 to $25. Call 410-366-6544.
