Sound, Song and Symbol
A four-part workshop on Jewish liturgical singing with musicians Jeremiah Lockwood and Jewlia Eisenberg in preparation for the High Holidays
Begins on Thursday, July 6th at 6pm
Jeremiah Lockwood (leader of The Sway Machinery and Because Jewish's High Holiday Music Director) joins with Jewlia Eisenberg (leader of the band Charming Hostess and cantorial soloist for Congregation Chochmat ha Lev, Berkeley, CA) to present a series of four workshops in July 2017 that will combine communal music making, text study and conversation. These workshop events are rigorous in their engagement with historic Jewish sounds and classic texts and positive in their affirmation of the value and inherent beauty of all voices.
Participants in these workshops will develop a repertoire of pieces that will be performed as part of the 2017 Because Jewish High Holidays services. The musical and liturgical skills participants develop will be put into practice directly this coming Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur at our unique communal services in Brooklyn, but can be applied to any creative practice or spiritual community.
Gather with friends and community members new and old to experience the pleasure of singing!
Every Thursday in July (6, 13, 20 & 27) from 6-7:30pm at the 14th Street Y, 344 East 14th St (between 1st and 2nd Aves)
$70 Series Fee (four classes and final performance)
$18 individual class fee
These summer sessions will culminate with a performance at Lament at Green-Wood: The Ninth of Av on July 31st
