Shabbat Shira (the Sabbath of Song) is celebrated on the Sabbath of the
Torah portion B’shalach, usually in January or February, depending upon
the Hebrew calendar.
At Temple Emanu-El, we celebrate this time of year with a special weekend of Jewish music. Included is the chanting of the “Song of the Sea” and a Sermon in Song that explores some of the varied repertoire of our heritage.
Cantor Lori Corrsin and our phenomenal Temple Emanu-El Choir, singing from the bimah, will perform the next Shabbat Shira Sermon in Song on Friday, January 10, 2014, at 6 PM. K. Scott Warren will conduct, and Dr. Andrew Henderson will accompany on our magnificent organ.
This year’s theme is “Early 20th Century Masterpieces” and will focus on the music and times of Cantor William Sparger and Choral Director Max Spicker, including pieces by Will C. Macfarlane, Frank van der Stucken and Heinrich Zöloner. Note: This program is part of our 2013-2014 course of study “Who Are We? Our Heritage, Our Future.”
Launch the audio player to listen to all Sermons in Song.
