Symphony to Debut Fiery ‘Soul’ Music

Wayne Hinton is a Methodist, and he understands what Jewish audiences will feel when they hear a performance by the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony. "It's like when you hear a Frenchman conducting French music," said Hinton, the symphony's executive director. "It's akin to their soul." The soul, or more specifically the soul aflame, will anchor the symphony's Dec. 19 performance at Temple Israel of Hollywood, where the shul's Nimoy Concert Series will host the West Coast premiere of "Souls on Fire," an oratorio based on Elie Wiesel's book on centuries of Chasidic leaders.
