YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The musical director of the Youngstown Symphony Orchestra sat down to lunch at the Jewish Community Center Wednesday afternoon.

Randall Craig Fleischer spoke to the group about the orchestra’s opening performance this Saturday. It will feature two Israelli-American musicians, Avner Dorman who composed the concerto and Inbal Segev who will be the featured cellist.

The Youngstown Area Jewish Federation helped underwrite the concerto.

“It’s a modern cello thing. There are elements of rock movement, there’s entertaining elements of jazz,” said Fleischer. “It’s an amplified cello which is a little bit different, but Inbal’s sound is so lush and so glorious. It’s an intense work. There’s sort of a darkness to it, a drama to it. When we played the second movement at the second rehearsal, we got hopelessly lost because we were completely entranced by the music of the movement.”

The Youngstown Symphony Orchestra’s opening concert is this Saturday at 8 the DeYor Performing Arts Center.
