Concerts by Seattle Jewish Chorale present stories of encouragement and signs of hope. In 2011, we sang the story of Billings, Montana, where an entire community found its soul by confronting bigotry and hatred with a show of support for its Jewish neighbors. In 2012, we shared uniquely Jewish responses to adversity, with songs of hope, humor, and healing for hard times. |
This year, we present a musical celebration of journeys, both physical and spiritual, with songs of travel, and of the courage, persistence, and grace it requires. It may be a journey to a new place or towards a new understanding, the road to forgiveness, or the road home. In this diverse program, the Chorale takes a melodic trip through Turkey, Yemen, Eastern Europe, America, Canada, and Israel, featuring contemporary sacred works, traditional folksongs, and popular hits sung in Hebrew, English, Yiddish, and Ladino. Travel with us through this poignant, energizing and uplifting music--no passport required!
Seattle Jewish Chorale performs under the direction of Mary Pat Graham, with pianist Harumi Makiyama, and guests Will Dowd (percussion), Adam Shapiro (oboe), and narrator Gigi Yellen.
Tickets will be available at the door with a "Pay What You Can" option for the Un(der)employed.
