As Jews around the world prepared for the first Passover Seder on Wednesday night under the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) released a stirring music video to raise spirits.

Introduced by music director-designate Lahav Shani, 19 musicians of the IPO played parts of “Ma Nishtana,” “Simcha Raba,” “B’tzet Yisrael” and “Avadim Hayinu” — all songs from the Passover Haggadah that is read during the Seder — in the three-minute virtual performance.

“We miss you and prepared something special for you,” said Shani in his introduction, as the musicians — who came together on an online video platform from their separate locations — launched into the medley.
