The performance will take place 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23 at Orchestra Hall, 1111 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis.
The show will also include the debut of the Radio Choir from American Public Media, conducted by Tesfa Wondemagegnehu; a jazz quartet led by Walker; and vocalist Jason Harms.
The Minnesota Orchestra will also present “A Tribute to Benny Goodman,” featuring the Julian Bliss Septet, 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 30 at Orchestra Hall. The Minnesota Orchestra does not perform on either program.
Since 1912 the AJW has served as an important news resource for the Jewish community. The Jewish World unites the main Jewish communities in St. Paul and Minneapolis, as well as those in Duluth, Rochester and smaller cities, and bridges the divides between the various Jewish religious streams.
