Koleinu, Boston’s Jewish Community Chorus, is an eighty-member chorus of adults of all backgrounds that performs Jewish choral music for audiences in Boston and beyond. Its primary mission is to provide its members, regardless of their previous musical experience or religious affiliation, an opportunity to learn, sing and perform Jewish music in a meaningful way. Carol Marton, lauded for her skills as a conductor and teacher, is its founding Artistic Director, and Koleinu’s accompanist since 2005 is the accomplished pianist Victor Cayres. Koleinu has been praised for its expressiveness, repertoire and for the high musical standards it maintains as a non-audition chorus.
Rehearsals are engaging and emphasize the power of musical expression. Koleinu is a member of the Greater Boston Choral Consortium, a cooperative association of diverse choral groups in greater Boston, and rehearses from September–June on Thursday nights (7:15-9:30 p.m.) at Temple Ohabei Shalom, 1187 Beacon Street, Brookline.
