At the Top of Disney Hall. . .

We attended the Kindred Spirits fundraising concert last night at Disney Hall in downtown Los Angeles.

This was our first visit to Disney Hall and we had a bird's eye view sitting in the next to last row of the balcony. It did provide a fascinating view of the concert hall:

The concert itself was outstanding although I do not intend to review it here. We were treated to musical performances by the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony conducted by Dr. Noreen Green; Cantors Ilan Davidson, Alberto Mizrahi, Alisa Pomerantz-Boro and David Propis; and the Mass Choir from the First A.M.E. Church of Los Angeles. There were also spoken word presentations by: Ed Asner, Mike Burstyn, Valerie Harper, Rev. Dr. John Joseph Hunter, and Millie Perkins. An advance article about the concert appeared locally in The Jewish Journal.

Thank you to Cantor Davidson of Temple Beth El in San Pedro, and his committee, for a beautiful, inspiring, spiritual, ecumenical evening. Kindred Spirits and its efforts are worthy of our support.
