Nashirah The Jewish Chorale of Greater Philadelphia
Nashirah, enters its ninth year as the only auditioned, community-based chorale in the Greater Philadelphia area that performs exclusively Jewish and Jewish-themed music.
Our distinctive musical programming embodies the broadest possible range of Jewish repertoire; bringing choral music of many lands,languages and cultures together.
Nashirah's unique performances offer wonderfully diverse music spanning the borders of many continents and the boundaries of time. Always striving for the highest degree of musicianship, we infuse our performances with 'neshama', soul with which we touch the hearts of our audiences.
ashirah's singers come from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware - we hail from all walks of life, and are united by a commitment to musical excellence, a love of singing all things Jewish, and a special desire to enable all listeners to experience the great beauty of the Jewish musical tradition.
Chorales such as the Zamir Chorale of Boston, the Zamir Chorale of New York, and Zemer Chai of Washington have long been considered cultural treasures of their communities.
So too, Nashirah is delighted to have the opportunity to share this beautiful art form and proud to be the seminal chorale of its type in the Philadelphia area.
