Peace, Shalom, Salaam

Second Avenue Jewish Chorale to join forces with prominent musicians to present “Peace, Shalom, Salaam” on April 10, 2016

South Florida’s Second Avenue Jewish Chorale will give a groundbreaking concert on Sunday, April 10, 2016, at 4 pm at Temple Emanu-El in Miami Beach. The program, “Peace, Shalom, Salaam,” under the direction of Coreen Duffy, will feature Second Avenue Jewish Chorale, the University of Miami’s Frost Symphonic Women’s Ensemble, celebrated “Siempre Flamenco” duo, Paco and Celia Fonta, internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Robynne Redmon, and baritones Rabbi Marc Philippe of Temple Emanu-El and Rabbi Mark Kula of Bet Shira Congregation.

“Peace, Shalom, Salaam” will celebrate those who strive for peace in the Middle East and throughout the world, by presenting a musical commemoration of the struggle and hardship of conflict and by promoting the dream that we can bring about peace. The music performed will offer an international flavor, representing different world regions, religions, and perspectives. Siempre Flamenco and the Second Avenue Jewish Chorale will perform music rooted in Spain, harkening to a pre-Inquisition period when Christians, Jews, and Muslims co-existed peacefully, their cultures flourishing. Other highlights include music from various traditions such as Catholic, African-American Gospel, Broadway, American folk, Israeli, and Palestinian.

The Second Avenue Jewish Chorale, now in its fifth season, is the only select concert choir in South Florida that performs music from around the world that is connected to Jewish tradition, composers, and culture. The sparkling voices of the Second Avenue Jewish Chorale and the Frost Symphonic Women’s Ensemble, combined with the spiritual and vocal leadership of Rabbis Philippe and Kula and the visual spectacular of Siempre Flamenco, will create a stunning afternoon of music that will be unforgettable.

Tickets are free; suggested donation is $10. Reserved VIP seating is $18, and includes a cocktail afterglow sponsored by Dr. Phillip and Patricia Frost. To RSVP and for VIP seating, reserve online at www.SecondAvenueJewishChorale.org or contact Temple Emanu-El at (305) 538-2503. Parking is available at the 17th Street garage ($1 per hour).
