GREAT BARRINGTON – The B’Shalom Chorale, Berkshire County’s only choral group offering a full program of Jewish music, is preparing for its third musical season. Singers will have the opportunity to work with conductor and singer Jack Brown, with all-around musician and accompanist Joe Rose, and with Cantor Emily Sleeper Mekler, former longtime cantor of Sinai Temple in Springfield.
Men and women of all faiths are invited to join. Requirements for singing are a nice singing voice, preferably with some choral experience, and a willingness to learn music in 2-4 part harmonies. Dues are $50.
Weekly rehearsals begin Wednesday evening, June 1 at 7:30 p.m., and continue through the chorale’s concert, Wednesday evening, Aug. 10. Both the rehearsals and concert will be held at Hevreh of Southern Berkshire in Great Barrington.
