Shir Joy Chorus begins its spring season with two open rehearsal opportunities. The Chorus is seeking new singers, especially basses, although all parts are welcome. Regular rehearsals are on Sunday evenings and are held at Congregation B’nai Shalom, which generously donates rehearsal space to us.
Our open rehearsals will include a meet and greet, section placement, and registration. You can observe the rehearsal or join right in with the singing. Our director, Nan Gibbons, as well as members of the Board will be available to chat and answer questions.
Shir Joy Chorus is an adult community chorus, dedicated to learning, sharing, and performing Jewish music from the rich and varied Judaic cultures of Israel and the Jewish Diaspora. Although many temples and synagogues have choruses that sing on the holidays, we are the only year-round trans-denominational Jewish chorus in Central Massachusetts. The Chorus performs music in English, Yiddish, Hebrew, Ladino, and other languages, the pronunciation of which is taught during rehearsals, so no prior knowledge is needed. Founded in 2011, Shir Joy 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. The Chorus is non-auditioned and is open to all people regardless of ethnicity or religious background.+ More... - Less...
