Our Temple B’rith Sholom choir is lead by our choir director, Nicole DelGiorno. She works closely with our seven member volunteer choir and the Rabbi to plan, practice, and perform musical selections to enhance our worship experience. The choir and organist participate at most Friday evening services throughout the active calendar year, except during the summer months.
Temple B’rith Sholom has developed extensive musical program for the High Holy Days. During the High Holy Days the choir is bolstered by four professional soloists. A cello performance of Kol Nidre is also part of the Yom Kippur observance.
Temple B’rith Sholom’s choir is available to participates at b’nah mitzvah as needed. Please contact Nicole to discuss musical selections and performance requirements.
