The Chorale performs major Hanukkah and spring concerts each season, appears at community events (e.g. Holocaust Remembrance Day; Interfaith 9/11 memorial; NW Folklife Festival), and gives outreach concerts for underserved populations. Past performance venues include the Seattle Jewish Film Festival, Town Hall Seattle, Crossroads Bellevue, Temple B’nai Torah, The Summit at First Hill, and the Caroline Kline Galland Home.
Seattle Jewish Chorale’s repertoire includes songs in Hebrew, English, Yiddish and Ladino, and incorporates a wide variety of styles and genres within the Jewish choral tradition: sacred and secular; a cappella and accompanied; classical, jazz, folk, and pop. By exploring this rich choral heritage -- from the romanzas of medieval Spain and the great synagogue composers of 17th c. Italy and 19th c. Germany, to the pioneer songs of Israel, the Yiddish theater music and labor songs that took root in America, and the modern-day flowering of Jewish camp songs, and new liturgical music -- Seattle Jewish Chorale takes audiences on an entertaining and educational journey through Jewish history, culture and experience.
