The Hanukkah Story World Premiere!

Posted in:

We are privileged to announce that the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra is set to play the World Premiere of Lucas Richman’s original piece, “The Hanukkah Story” on Saturday, December 4, 2021, conducted by Maestro Dirk Meyer.

Written to add to the already successful traditional Hanukkah pieces available for orchestra,  this vibrant new work celebrates the Jewish festival of Hanukkah by telling the miraculous story of the Maccabees’ return to Jerusalem. An original setting of the traditional Ma’oz Tzur text brings the Festival of Lights to life through a swirling flourish of tambourine, chorus and orchestra.
