Celebrating 40 years of conducting in the TwinCities

My greetings to you all. The MN Sinfonia is opening its 29th season with concerts on Oct 26 at First Covenant Church in East St Paul (7pm) and Oct 28 at the Basilica of Saint Mary (2pm) in Minneapolis. As always, these are free admission, and we want you to bring your (grand) children!!

The concert will feature Israeli cellist and remarkable - yes, remarkable musician, Amit Peled. He is nothing short of amazing. He plays all over the world, and performs on Pablo Casal's cello, which was leant to him by Casal's widow. That is quite a compliment and then some!

The program will be a really fun, and somewhat of an unusual mix - Amit's part is called, "My Jewish Journey," and will feature music by Jewish composers, and Jewish content. The rest of the program includes a new Polka by Sergey Kvoshchinsky, which is part of our New Work's by MN Composers, as well as the Haydn "Miracle Symphony, and my latest, "Yizkor (remembrance) for Mom." We lost my mother (Dorothy Jacobs) this past April (she was 95+), and the concert, and in fact the entire season is being dedicated to her memory. I know that many of you met my mother some 55 years ago. She was an extraordinary lady, and dedicated much of the past 40 years in helping me to build first the old Minneapolis Chamber Symphony, and for the past 29 years, the Sinfonia.

This year marks my 40th anniversary performing in the Twin Cities - well over 1600 performances, and still going strong! All in all, I have a lot to be very grateful for.

Please plan to join us in a few weeks, and by all means, stop by and say hello! For more information, please visit the Sinfonia website:


Until we see each other again, I wish you all a very good, happy and healthy new year! Jay

opening of 28th season

October 11, 2016 by Jay Fishman (Register to contact)

To protect privacy, contact info has been removed from this post. Register to see the original with contact info.

Greetings. The Sinfonia is beginning its 28th season with concerts on October 21, 2016 at 7pm Metropolitan State University 700 E. 7th St., St. Paul and October 23, 2016 at 2pm Basilica of St. Mary
1600 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis

We are featuring an incredible violinist Rachel Lee Friday, who performs all over the world, and has been a sensation where ever she plays. This will be a really fun program - a Dvorak Slavonic Dance, the Julius Conus violin concerto (a great Russian romantic work), a new work that I composed in memory of a friend for over 35 years, and one of the great symphonies (#88) by Franz Joseph Haydn.

I suspect that many of you do not go to symphony concerts, maybe never even tried... So here's the deal - all of our concerts are free admission, and you can and should bring the kids (or grandkids), which means that you have a chance to see and hear something really special (of course I am biased, but still), and it won't cost you any money. What a deal. Check out the orchestra at our website: http://www.*****/**** I hope to see you - come backstage after the show and say hello.

My best, Jay
