Jewish Music: Many Languages, One Heart
Weekend Program with Performance
Sunday, March 8, 2020 - 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Kolot HaLev (Voices of the Heart) choir
What is Jewish music? The best answer is a musical response that draws on the cultures and traditions of countries where Jewish people have lived over the centuries.
As part of a 3-session series, cantor and choral director Ramón Tasat leads discussions about this intriguing history, which segue into live performances by the Kolot HaLev (Voices of the Heart) choir. The words to the liturgical, classical, folk, and contemporary works the choir performs may be in different languages, but the message is universal.
