Held each summer for the past 23 years, The North American Jewish Choral Festival is the premiere Jewish choral event anywhere. It brings together singers and choirs from across North America, with a renowned teaching staff, conductors, composers and professionals to sing, learn and share the joy of Jewish music. The Festival features five days of intensive workshops, study, performances, concerts, and fun and friendship. More than 500 participants take part in daily community sings; "instant ensembles" for all participants, led by acclaimed conductors, which rehearse for four days and perform at a gala closing concert; evening concerts, featuring outstanding vocal ensembles, choruses and soloists; workshops covering everything from vocal and conducting techniques to the history of Jewish music and ritual; and late night gatherings, including Jewish music sing-alongs, videos and more. The Festival attracts amateur singers, professional soloists, cantors, conductors, and lovers of Jewish music from across the spectrum and denominations in an unforgettable experience.
