Timing, of course, must be second nature to musicians; it is one of the fundamental tools of their craft. But Krzysztof Chorzelski seems to have made a habit of being in the right place at the right time all his life.

The Jewish 45-year-old Polish-born UK resident violist and conductor is currently in Israel to oversee two concerts by the Young Israel Philharmonic Orchestra – at the Jerusalem Theater (July 20, 5 p.m.) and at the Charles Bronfman Auditorium (July 21, 12 noon). The 100-strong ensemble, which operates under the aegis of the Jerusalem Music Center, will perform Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony and Symphony No. 5 in D minor by Shostakovich.
