Event description
Join us for Part II of our online three-part series, "A Choral Rainbow," featuring choruses from diverse and under-represented communities.

About this event

We were thrilled with the global turnout for our series premiere on November 22! Mark your calendar now for Part II, which will spotlight three choruses:

• The Dallas Street Choir, which offers a musical outlet for people experiencing homelessness and severe disadvantage; Jonathan Palant, conductor

• The Yiddish Philharmonic Chorus, which is committed to promoting Yiddish language and culture through beautiful four-part harmony; Binyumen Schaechter, conductor

• The Philadelphia Heritage Chorale, which has a special commitment to music born of the African Diaspora or created by composers of African descent; Donald Dumpson, conductor.

WATCH this promotional video.

The first episode of "A Choral Rainbow" featured David Hodgkins, conductor of Coro Allegro—Boston's LGBTQ+ and allied classical chorus; Micah Hendler, conductor of The Jerusalem Youth Chorus—a choral and dialogue program for Palestinian and Israeli youth in Jerusalem; and Diana Sáez, a leading specialist in the field of Latin American choral music. WATCH THE REPLAY HERE!

"A Choral Rainbow" was created in response to the recent alarming rise in racism, antisemitism, and other forms of prejudice. We are committed to using our resources to expose our audiences (and ourselves) to music representing different cultures, ethnicities, and ways of thinking. With video performances and conversations between Artistic Director Joshua Jacobson and conductors of choruses from diverse and under-represented communities, "A Choral Rainbow" helps to build bridges and open doors of communication.
