|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Tuesday, repeating until Tue, May 26, 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, Oratorio Souls on Fire based on the book by Elie Wiesel and a celebration of Jewish Love Songs from around the world, performed both at AC and at the Curtis Institute of Music. We are looking forward to our Shabbat in Harmony evening on Friday, December 6, with the internationally acclaimed and Grammy nominated vocal sextet The Western Wind.

New members are invited to join us on Tuesday, December 10, as we start learning repertoire for our Spring season. 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
