The 36th Annual Interfaith Concert A Note of Hope in Divisive Times


The InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington (IFC) is sponsored its 36th Annual Interfaith Concert, a celebration of religious unity through the arts, on Thursday, November 19th
 at Washington Hebrew Congregation  (3935  Macomb  St.  NW  Washington,  DC). Kolot HaLev participated, as well as Hindu  Dancers  from  the  Lasyaa  Academy,  Mighty  Men’s  Chorus  of Metropolitan AME Church, as well as Jewish, LDS, Sikh, and other community performers.

Rabbi Gerald Serotta, Executive Director of the InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington, wrote this message to our Artistic Director, Dr. Ramón Tasat, to express his thanks to Kolot HaLev members:

Dear Ramon,

A thousand thanks for your enthusiastic support of the InterFaith Conference through your ready willingness to add our concert to the full schedule of Kolot HaLev's performances and rehearsals. And please convey my deep appreciation to the choir members who devote so much time, effort, and love to their performances. I do have an insider's view of how hard they work. I hope that all of those who participated received as much as they gave through enjoying the overall experience of our very diverse evening.

There was a lovely segment broadcast around the world on Voice of America which you might want to share with the choir members in case their friends from other continents surprise them by saying the heard or saw them on air. Please also share our best wishes for Thanksgiving and Chanukah with all.

B'vrachah,

Gerry

Kolot HaLev - Voices of the Heart - embodies the love of music and the community of people who come together every Thursday evening to learn new music and sing together as one voice. We thrive in seeing the happiness on the faces of our concert audiences, the excitement in the air, and the explosion of applause and bravo’s!

Our mission is to recover the treasures of Jewish music that have disappeared from our communities and bring them back for everyone to hear and enjoy, as well as to acquaint audiences with newly composed inspiring Jewish choral music.

Through our music, we aspire to build bridges between denominations through the experience and spirituality of this profoundly moving choral music.

Audiences have been pleasantly surprised that a community choir, without auditions, sings sophisticated and varied music at such a high level.
