Hungarian-born virtuoso British classical pianist and conductor Sir Andras Schiff is joining the Galilee Orchestra for the annual Christmas concert in Nazareth. The concert, replete with Christmas decorations, will take place December 19 at the Industrial Park at 8:30 p.m. Together with Schiff, the Galilee Orchestra will present a festive Romantic program: Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 and Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 5 "Reformation." Featuring the finest Arab and Jewish musicians and singers from the Galilee, the musicians of the Galilee Orchestra, founded by Polyphony Education, are considered ambassadors of peace.

Other concerts of the winter season includes a recital of up and coming Israeli violinist Hisham Houri, as well as a festive concert with Missa Criolla performed by the Galilee Orchestra, conducted by Yishai Steckler and featuring mezzo-soprano Yonit Shaked Golan, the Collegium Singers and an ensemble of ethnic South American instruments.
