Duration: 60 minutes (without intermission)

The Castle in Time Orchestra is the concert hall’s gospel of new groove.

The orchestra, 23 instrumentalists and singers, a computer and a conductor, connect the classical with modern, indie and electronic music.

Combining performance, video and sound, the special concert at the Israel Festival was inspired by The Sabbath, the seminal 1951 work by Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel.  Heschel challenges modern human beings – religiously observant, secular and adherents of other faiths — presenting the Sabbath as “a palace in time,” a cure for our fast-paced world. Shalev Ne’eman and conductor Matan Daskal’s engaging composition moves the densely packed schedule of the workweek to the calm of the Sabbath.

The orchestra, most of whose musicians are in their twenties, came into being independently in 2015. It has performed mostly on rock and indie stages in Israel, and provides music lovers of all types with a rare, unique and rousing concert experience.
