The Colorado Hebrew Chorale and its women’s choir Kol Nashim present their third annual gala, Raisins and Almonds: A Tu B’Shvat Celebration, Sunday, January 26, 2019, 6:30 pm at BMH-BJ Congregation, 560 S. Monaco Parkway in Denver. The format of the evening has been reworked to provide attendees with a unique musical experience.
The highlight of the event is a signature concert by the two choirs featuring returning Cantor Asa Fradkin of Bethesda, Maryland and joined by his Gesher Youth Chorale.
The concert honors the music of Oscar (Osi) and Selma Sladek, respected Jewish Community professionals for over six decades. It will also feature the world premiere of a piece by David Wohl, an award-winning composer from Ft. Collins, composed specifically for Kol Nashim.
A VIP reception precedes the concert. Afterwards, there will be a gourmet dessert reception, and an Israeli sing-along led by the choirs.
Raisins and Almonds is co-chaired by Carol Kozak Ward, Musical Director of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale, and Leah Peer, Musical Director of Kol Nashim. It is supported by JEWISHcolorado and the SCFD, the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District. Proceeds from Raisins and Almonds will enable both choirs to continue with their musical missions and to expand their outreach to the community.
