Profeti Della Quinta coming to Holy Blossom

In the space between Simchat Torah and Chanukah, Jewish organizations and synagogues roll out a slew of events to nourish the soul of the community. One such event is a concert showcasing the Israeli vocal ensemble Profeti della Quinta, who will perform Thursday, Oct. 23 at Holy Blossom Temple in Toronto.

The talented group will perform classic melodies from the Renaissance compiled by 16th-century Italian Jewish composer Salomone Rossi.

Profeti della Quinta has taken to the stage in venues around the world, from the United States to Japan and Switzerland to the Netherlands. Next Thursday's performance will mark the group's Canadian debut.

The selection of Rossi's Italian madrigals, instrumental pieces and Hebrew prayers will provide an auditory delight, while visually concert-goers will be treated to a screening of the award winning documentary Hebreo: The Search for Salomone Rossi as a prelude to the main event.
