The Colorado Hebrew Chorale and its sister choir, Kol Nashim announce OPEN REHEARSALS on August 20, 23, 27 and 30 as they launch their 2018-2019 season. The open rehearsals offer an opportunity for potential new singers to learn about the choirs and what they actually do.
The Colorado Hebrew Chorale is beginning its 25th season. It is a non-auditioned community choir of mixed voices, under the direction of founder Carol Kozak Ward. Members range in age from 14-80, and come from all over the metro area. They share a love of singing Jewish music in many forms. Highlights for the coming year include Children’s Hospital Colorado, “Raisins and Almonds” (the choir’s annual fundraiser), and the annual community Holocaust commemoration. The choir rehearses on Monday evenings 7:30-9:30 pm at the Hebrew Educational Alliance (HEA) 3600 S. Ivanhoe in Denver. Rehearsals on August 20 and August 27 are open to potential new singers.
Kol Nashim, the women’s choir of Colorado Hebrew Chorale is beginning its 6th year. It is a non-auditioned choir under the direction of founder Leah Peer. Highlights of the coming season include a performance at “Raisins & Almonds”, a world premiere of “Lamoot Tze’ira” (To Die Young) by Denver composer M. Susan Brown written especially for Kol Nashim, with text by Hannah Senesh, and Woman to Woman featuring a return to Congregation Rodef Shalom and a first performance in Fort Collins. The choir will be rehearsing at a new day and time on Thursday evenings, 6:00-8:15 pm, also at HEA. Rehearsals on August 23 and August 30 are open to potential new singers.
No knowledge of Hebrew is necessary for participation in either choir. Female participants are welcome to sing in both choirs.
