Shirei Chesed Community Chorus
Tue, October 19 at 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until Tue, December 21, 2021
Shirei Chesed Community Chorus continues to build community through learning a rich and diverse repertoire of Jewish music, and bring harmony into the world that needs it more than ever. During the height of Covid Era we focused on growing our repertoire and musicianship, as well as recording a few virtual choir projects (links here).
This year we are cautiously optimistic about our ability to sing in the same space again, even though some extra precautions may be needed. All participants will be required to submit a proof of vaccination, masking may be required.
Our 4-part chorus brings together almost 50 lovers of choral singing from both Ansche Chesed and the wider Jewish community. 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, a celebration of Jewish Love Songs from around the world, performed both at AC and at the Curtis Institute of Music, and a collaboration with the Grammy nominated vocal sextet The Western Wind.
Ability to carry a tune is important; reading Hebrew or music is not required; Tuesdays 7:00-8:15pm. 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
