“If a choir is only about singing and performing – there will be no choir for a while.
If choir is about teaching and learning, growing, connecting, community,
cultural exploration and transmission, and innovating – we will find a way to have choir”.
–Kellie Walsh – President of Choral Canada
Even in the Covid era, our Shirei Chesed Community Chorus will continue 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. In lieu of live performances, this semester we will focus our efforts this semester on growing our repertoire and musicianship, as well as recording a virtual choir project.
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
