Shabbat is the Jewish day of rest; celebrated each week from sunset on Friday to Sunset on Saturday. During Shabbat, we remember the story of the creation where God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh day.
SLSO musicians are meeting audiences where they are through SLSO On the Go. This series of limited-capacity, outdoor pop-up concerts features chamber music throughout the region, from places of worship to medical centers, from Soldiers Memorial to Forest Park.
