Since 2006, the Connecticut Z’mirah Chorale has attracted singers from throughout the state to perform music of interest to Jewish audiences. Their mission is to preserve and share all types of Jewish vocal music, which reflect the rich tapestry of our people’s experience. Repertory ranges from complex modern compositions and classical Reform works of Shabbat and High Holiday liturgies to Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino and Israeli folk and work songs, as well as meaningful pieces by non-Jewish composers. The group, conducted by Kevin Mack, is open to new members, and rehearsals take place on Sundays from 7-9 p.m., at Whitney Center in Hamden, during the spring and fall.
The Chorale will perform on Sunday, May 14, at 7 p.m., at Tower One/Tower East in New Haven. The program will include a sampling of the rich repertoire of Jewish music, including Yiddish folk songs and a sing-along so all can join their voices in sharing our musical heritage.
