Description

Though conductor Zubin Mehta was born in India and has had a dazzling international career, it is Israel with which he is most identified. Since he first joined the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in 1969, he has developed strong ties with Israel, becoming the face of its cultural excellence. Produced on the eve of Mehta’s 80th birthday, Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds: The Conductor Zubin Mehta is a timely celebration of the legendary maestro’s life, work, and efforts to bring the transformative power of music to the places and communities that need it most.
