GREAT BARRINGTON – The B’Shalom Chorale is back for its second musical season. Under the artistic direction of Cantor Emily Sleeper Mekler, the chorale will be singing music by composers from various eras and genres, including Baroque, 19th/20th century, Yiddish Theatre, and more. Once again singers will have the opportunity to work with noted singer and conductor Jack Brown, and with all-around musician and accompanist Joe Rose. Rehearsals begin Wednesday, May 27, and continue every Wednesday evening until the chorale’s concert on Aug. 12. Rehearsals and the concert will both be held at Hevreh of Southern Berkshire, 270 State Road.
The Chorale is seeking more singers this year. Some choral experience is helpful, but those with a nice singing voice and a willingness to learn will be welcome. The chorale is also looking for volunteers to help with publicity, fundraising, and other tasks.
