About Shir Joy Chorus of Massachusetts
We love to sing
Shir Joy Chorus is dedicated to the performance of Jewish music in Central Massachusetts through the pleasure of singing and sharing Jewish music among ourselves and others. The chorus currently consists of 32 members representing a dozen Massachusetts towns and cities. The chorus is non-auditioned and is open to all people regardless of ethnicity or religious background who are interested in learning and performing music from the rich and varied Judaic cultures from Israel and the Jewish Diaspora.
Shir Joy Chorus was founded in 2011 by Karen Rothman and a small dedicated Board of Trustees, including Wendy Damoulakis, Bill Martin, and Eric Pell. Through their efforts, a generous grant was obtained from the Federation of Central Massachusetts to begin the chorus, which had its first rehearsal in late October, 2011.
