The Colorado Hebrew Chorale and its women’s choir, Kol Nashim, invite you to attend their first fundraising event on Sunday, January 28 at the Hebrew Educational Alliance, 3600 S. Ivanhoe Street in Denver. Funds raised will enable both choirs to continue with their musical missions and to expand their outreach to the community.

The three-tiered event commences at 5:00 pm with a bazaar featuring an open wine bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and vendor tables.

The musical program begins at 6:00 pm featuring two world premieres. Guest artist Cantor Asa Fradkin of Bethesda, MD will be guest soloist with the Colorado Hebrew Chorale for composer Gerald Cohen’s Oseh Shalom.  The Colorado Chamber Players will join in this arrangement for chorus and strings.

Kol Nashim will premiere a new work by Denver native Julie Geller, Ka’asher Berachti Al HaNerot, set to a piano arrangement by David Ross.

Other musical highlights will include a taste of Baghdadi music with Rahel Musleah, an expert on Indian-Jewish culture.

Following the performance there will be a sit-down dinner with a Tu B’Shvat themed menu, catered by Cohen’s Cuisine. Cantor Fradkin will offer as special concert during dinner featuring popular opera and musical theatre selections.
