Shirei Chesed Community Chorus
Tue, September 10, 2019 at 7:30 pm – 9:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until Tue, April 14, 2020
Our 4-part chorus brings together almost 50 lovers of choral singing from both Ansche Chesed and the wider Jewish community. We perform an eclectic repertoire inspired by the richness and diversity of Jewish music from around the globe, ranging from liturgical settings to Yiddish, Ladino and Israeli songs, Hassidic niggunim and new compositions. Our recent performances include classical programs with The Bachanalia String Orchestra, a jazz concert with The Afro-Semitic Experience ensemble, a celebration of Jewish Love Songs from around the world, performed both at AC and at the Curtis Institute of Music, and a Friday night service Shabbat in Harmony, with the internationally acclaimed and Grammy nominated vocal sextet The Western Wind.
New members are invited to join us on Tuesday, January 7. Ability to carry a tune is important; reading Hebrew or music is not required; Tuesdays 7:30-9:15pm. Free for Ansche Chesed members; non-members pay $90 per semester or $180 per year. For more information, or to schedule an audition, please email NHirschhorn@AnscheChesed.org
