BETH EMET INTERGENERATIONAL BAND

This is an intergenerational Tefilah band that plays for select Shabbat services throughout the year. The band is open to musicians of all ages including students grades six through twelve who play an instrument (preferably a wind instrument). Rehearsals are held on the Monday evening at 7:00 p.m. prior to the special service when the band will play. This intergenerational band is a wonderful opportunity for  students participate in a non-competitive environment to strengthen their confidence in performing while they also strengthen their ties to the Jewish community. At the same time, they have the opportunity to work with and learn from older, more experienced players who can serve as mentors. The band will focus on working together to create a cohesive sound through traditional as well as non-traditional Jewish music.  All instruments are welcome!  Due to the time constraint participants must have at least two years of experience on their respective instrument and be able to read music at a fairly comfortable pace.  

Contact Cantor Susan Lewis Friedman to get on her "musician mailing list."
