3rd Berkshire Summer Celebration of Jewish Music, 15 June, 2012

3rd Berkshire Summer Celebration of Jewish Music

New to the Celebration will be a choral concert in the context of the Berkshire Jewish Community‚s "Shabbat Across the Berkshires." On Friday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m, at the Hevreh of Southern Berkshire, the Celebration will join a Sabbath worship augmented by outstanding choral music presented by The Cantilena Singers, under the direction of Andrea Goodman. The repertoire will include classical composers such as Sulzer and Lewandowski, and contemporary composers such as Finkelstein, Friedman and Janowski. Cantor and co-director Robert Scherr will be a featured soloist with the chorale. As this is part of the regular Friday night service, there is no charge; the public is invited.

These events are co-sponsored by the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires, Hevreh of Southern Berkshire, Congregation Beth Israel, Congregation Knesset Israel, Congregation Ahavath Sholom, Temple Anshe Amunim and The Berkshire Music School. Supported in part by grants from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and the Pittsfield Cultural Council. The Summer Celebration of Music is also presented in cooperation with the Boston Symphony Orchestra Berkshire Education and Community Program.
