Kol Nashim: Woman to Woman ‘19 Concerts

Kol Nashim, the women’s choir of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale, under the leadership of Leah Peer, will be hosting its annual Woman to Woman concerts on Wednesday, May 22, 7:00 pm at Congregation Rodef Shalom, 450 S. Kearney Street and on Thursday, May 23, 7:00 pm at Temple Sinai, 3509 S. Glencoe in Denver. The May 22 performance is co-sponsored by Congregation Rodef Shalom. The May 23 performance is co-sponsored by Temple Sinai and is for WOMEN ONLY. It will be performed together with members of Girl Scout Troop 1737 under the leadership of Liss Gruen.

The program features song selections in Hebrew and English, celebrating the strength of  women and children.  Over the past five years, the choirs of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale have taken upon themselves a mission of commissioning new Jewish chorale works. They include new arrangements of existing works, as well as new choral settings of Jewish texts. Kol Nashim has both commissioned (and been the recipient of gifts of) new compositions by Colorado composers. A special focus of these compositions is that the texts are written by female poets. The program includes a reprise of Lamoot Tze’ira (To Die Young), the M. Susan Brown piece which premiered at Raisins & Almonds on January 27, 2019.

Woman to Woman concerts benefit the Jerusalem Shellter for Battered Women and are matched by an anonymous donor. Admission to all Woman to Woman concerts is by donation and can be reserved at www.coloradohebrewchorale.org.
