Edinburgh synagogue hosts operatic concert

THE Edinburgh Hebrew Congregation Synagogue was transformed into an opera house earlier this month.

The EHC inaugural Evening of Opera Classics was attended by around 220 guests.

Around 65 of the guests enjoyed a pre-concert light supper.

The concert, in association with Classical Musicians Scotland, was performed by a 12-piece orchestra and professional singers, led by distinguished musical director Jonathon Swinard.

The compere was CMS director Daisy Henderson and guests were welcomed by EHC chairman John Danzig, pictured on the right with performers.

John said: “The general feedback I’ve had is that the singers and orchestra were excellent, with guests enjoying our brilliant acoustics and the intimate atmosphere.”
