Here’s an environmentally-themed event coming up in Boston.
Koleinu, Boston’s Jewish Community Chorus, invites you to bring joy and warmth to winter with a “green” choral concert, Under the Carob Tree, at 4pm at Chesnut Hill’s Temple Emeth on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014. The concert features music that celebrates our natural world, including songs by Naomi Shemer, Shulamit Ran, Chava Alberstein and a gorgeous Israeli setting of text from of the biblical Song of Songs. Temple Emeth’s Cantor Michael McCloskey will lend his lyric tenor voice to the event, and Rabbi Katy Allen of Ma’yan Tikvah, the synagogue without walls of Wayland, MA, will also participate. Koleinu’s director, Carol Marton, and Rabbi Allen have been working together to create a musical event that highlights the powerful connections of Jewish and poetic texts with nature.
Koleinu, 85-members strong, is using the opportunity to address its own “carbon footprint” by using recycled paper products for the program and reception and by carpooling to rehearsals. Audience members are encouraged to carpool to the concert as well. A special link has been set up at CarpoolWorld.com making it easy to find and offer rides to the concert using this link: Koleinu’s Jan. 26 Concert. Help us create a “green” concert together!
