Upcoming Events

In May 2020 The Choristers will present two performances of Avodat Hakodesh (Sacred Service) by Swiss-born American composer Ernest Bloch (1880 – 1959).  This worthy, yet extremely rarely performed, choral work is one of only two published classical musical settings of a liturgical Jewish service.  Just as the emotional power of the Roman Catholic Mass in settings by the great masters does not depend solely on the Christian affiliation of its audience, Bloch conceived his Avodat Hakodesh to be a transcendent, inclusive humanistic work of universal spiritual experience.  In response to the rise of anti-Semitism both in this country and globally, The Choristers will join with Nashirah: The Jewish Chorale of Greater Philadelphia (Dr. Julia Zavadsky, Artistic Director) resulting in a unique, cross-cultural, community-building collaboration.
