April 11, 2022
Press release from ShabbaTones Chorus
Fresh off its fall sold-out performance, the ShabbaTones Chorus has prepared an even more outstanding program for May 15, 2022, 5 p.m., at the Highlands Presbyterian Community Church.
King David was a prolific writer of psalms that have been written into large numbers of styles for choral works over the centuries. The 23rd Psalm, “The Lord is my Shepherd,” was arranged by an Israeli composer in 1945. The famous Psalm 114 will be sung as an ancient Gregorian Latin and Sephardic style, continued by the Florida debut of a new non-published work by Paul Caldwell. The packed program also includes beloved Yiddish favorites, a 17th-century Italian Sephardic sanctification, the 18th-century Ester Oratorio Purim spiel, beloved Israeli classics, and much more. This concert is accompanied in part by a professional string quartet. Our special guest vocalist is the renowned Cantor Bill Lieberman of Weston, FL. You don’t want to miss this amazing, unusual event. Tickets are selling fast at http://www.shabbatones.org/tickets.
Non-denominational and independent, the ShabbaTones Chorus preserves and performs music of the Jewish people from ancient to modern and across continents. The Jewish and non-Jewish singers carry a deep feeling of tradition and classic appreciation for these various forms of history and art. The richness of the ethnic diversity within Jewish culture is reflected in the songs. This is what all will hear at the spacious Highlands Presbyterian Community Church, selected for its excellent acoustics.
