The Latrun Church is taking on a new kind of service, come August 22 and 29. The Pearls of Classical Music, a year-round music festival, will present two concerts at the church. "We've been performing at Latrun Monastery for years with great success, but the monks opposed the idea of giving concerts in their church, since it is their spiritual home where they pray four times a day," said the director of the festival, Elena Baidak. "Yet when we came up with the idea of the Feast of Vine, they eagerly accepted it. For the monks, the vine that they produce has a special sacral meaning, and youth from all over Europe comes to Latrun to participate in the harvest every August." The Feast of Vine includes degustation and vine sales at the monastery yard (which, from 3:30 p.m., will be open only for the ticket-buying public), followed by a concert, which starts at 4:30 p.m. The program features Misa Criola, by Ramirez, performed by the Vocal Octet, accompanied by Latino Argentino Quartet (August 22) and Ave Maria - pieces by J.S. Bach, Schubert, Vivaldi, Caccini and others, performed by Israeli vocalists Irina Bertman and Yotam Cohen with the Jerusalem Festival Orchestra (August 29). For reservations: (02) 535-6954.
