Choir

  • Shul Choir
    Our choir, under the direction of Eliot Alderman, performs on a regular basis throughout the year enhancing our Synagogue services.

    The choir rehearses and performs with our local Cantor/Chazan Moshe Caplan and occasionally performs with guest Cantors invited by the Synagogue. 
    In recent months the choir has accompanied world renowned Cantors Shulem Lemmer and Simon Cohen and will be performing with others during the forthcoming year and the High Holidays.

  • Booking the shul choir
    The choir together with Moshe Caplan have many requests by members to perform on Shabbat for a special occasion such as a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, forthcoming wedding, special anniversary etc.  
    Although the choristers perform on a voluntary basis there are some costs associated with the choir including our professional choirmaster, preparation of rehearsal and performance materials etc. These costs are in part defrayed by generous donations and funds agreed by the Synagogue.
    To ensure the viability of the choir the Synagogue levies a fee for requested performances.
    Should you wish to engage the choir or make a donation in support of the choir please contact the Synagogue office.
  • Join our choir
    The choir is always looking to attract new choristers (boys and adults).
    We rehearse in the main Shul on Monday evenings from 8-9.30pm.  

    If you are interested in joining or want to find out more about the choir, please contact Eliot Alderman via the Synagogue Office.
