Shir Joy Chorus will present its spring concert, “Songs of Gratitude & Resilience.” Come hear dramatic songs of perseverance and heartfelt music of thankfulness from ancient to modern times in English, Yiddish and Hebrew. The program will include clarinet and violin solos, and drum and piano accompaniment. The chamber group’s pieces will include a Renaissance piece by Solomon Rossi, and the full chorus’s selections will include a rollicking version of “Mizmor L’David.”
Also featured will be a beautiful Yiddish lullaby sung by a sextet, and a brand-new work, “Luminescent Indigo,” composed by the group’s director, Nan A. Kaipainen Gibbons. As always, the concert will include a sing-along. This year, there will be expanded raffle offerings, including flowers, a rock climbing gym membership, original works of art and more.
