Days of Awe and Rejoicing: Radiant Gems of Jewish Music - Chicago a cappella

Days of Awe and Rejoicing: Radiant Gems of Jewish Music

Program created by Jonathan Miller / Music direction by Patrick Sinozich

Chicago a cappella brings the universal resonance of Jewish music from the synagogue to our stages with this remarkable concert event.  Immerse yourself in this unique and poignant music, from hallowed chants and High Holiday prayers to luminous, heartfelt works by today’s composers.  Be swept away by the beauty and power of music by Shulamit Ran, Max Janowski and Louis Lewandowski, and enjoy Stacy Garrop’s joyous “Hava Nagila,” commissioned by Chicago a cappella

Chicago Classical Review raved about this concert: “technically immaculate, nuanced and expressive, and fully embodying the unique style and elements of this fascinating music….this is not an event to miss.”
