Jerusalem Symphony at Meyerhoff Hall

The Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra may not be as well known as the Israel Philharmonic, but it has a long history - more than 60 years. Its current U.S. tour includes its first visit to Baltimore, for a concert to benefit a trauma unit at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, which provides care regardless of a patient's nationality or religion and treats about 60,000 emergency-room patients annually.

Elli Jaffe will conduct the orchestra in Dvorak's New World Symphony. The program includes operatic, sacred and secular works sung by tenor Joseph Malovany (cantor of the Fifth Avenue Synagogue in New York City) and baritone Avraham Albrecht (cantor of Beth Tfiloh Congregation in Baltimore).

The concert, presented by the Baltimore Committee for Shaare Zedek Medical Center, takes place at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets are $35-$100. Call 410-486-9303.
