The Sounds of Freedom
ADAS ISRAEL CONGREGATION

Kolot haLev will devote its sixth Annual Concert to musical selections for Pesah - The Sound of Freedom. We are delighted to share this performance with the Adas Israel Choral Ensemble and most especially with Hazzan Arianne Brown, a remarkable guest artist.
The concert will consist of three sections:
The first will be devoted to a variety of musical selections from the Haggadah as we tell the story of our freedom. While the texts and music of Dayenu or Addir Hu may be familiar to our audience, the unique choral arrangements will help them understand the powerful lyrics in a new light.
The next section will be dedicated to love songs in English, the main theme of the Song of Songs. Solos, duets and trios, including selections by contemporary composers as well as from the time of the Renaissance.
Incredibly beautiful Psalms taken from the Hallel service and rarely heard in our communities follows. Among them will hear selections by prominent composers such as David Nowakowsky and Jacques Fromental Halevy.
Finally, Kolot haLev will conclude the concert with rousing renditions of “Le Shana haBaa,” Machtenberg‘s “Sheheheyanu” and “Shnirele Perele,” inviting the audience to dream with a future when redemption will arrive for the whole world.
