Born in Riga, Latvia in 1903, Lavry, who emigrates to Eretz Yisrael in 1935, composes over 400 pieces of music in his lifetime. Covering a broad spectrum of classical styles, including opera, symphonic poem arrangements, and oratorio (orchestral coral/vocalist music), his compositions are heavily influenced by oriental folk and traditional Jewish music from around the world. Also a gifted conductor, Lavry is invited to become Haifa’s Symphonic Orchestra Conductor, a position he maintains till his death.
