|Description:||In light of recent hate crimes, this concert of Jewish music seeks to foster understanding and to bring our community together through song. Selections will include rounds and part songs from ancient times to the present in Hebrew and English, and will include instrumental soloists on violin, cello, and clarinet, as well as piano accompaniment by Lisa Marcus-Jones. Featured numbers will include "Pray With My Feet," based on the words of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel who marched with Martin Luther King, Jr., and "Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor," based on Irving Berlin's song from Emma Lazarus's poem, woven in with Berlin's "God Bless America." Shir Joy's concerts always include a sing-along, so be prepared to sing together! NOTE: Snow Date is Sat., Feb. 15th at 7:30 pm.
Shir Joy Chorus is an adult, pluralistic community chorus, under the direction of Nan A. Kaipainen Gibbons, dedicated to learning, sharing, and performing Jewish music from the rich and varied Judaic cultures of Israel and the Jewish Diaspora. Founded in 2011, it is an independent nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, funded by the Jewish Federation of Central Massachusetts, the Westborough Cultural Council (a member of the Massachusetts Cultural Council), and private supporters. Congregation B'nai Shalom generously donates rehearsal and performance space. The chorus is non-auditioned and is open to all people regardless of ethnicity or religious background. Tickets may be purchased on the website or at the door.
