Event description

Description

An opportunity for all Liberal Jewish Communities to come together for a joyful day of sharing songs and ideas.

We start preparing for Shacharit service - and new this time, a chance to choose different ensemble groups - traditional choir, a capella, guitar led group - to lead different songs in the service.

Following lunch there will be a range of workshops, talks and discussions to choose from.

Havdallah concludes that part of the day and then we continue together for an evening of ‘open mic’ style performance, from sharing songs learnt during the day, to performances by music leaders, choirs and ensembles of all ages and musical styles! Dinner included.

LJ Music Day is for everyone with an interest in Synagogue music - enthusiastic congregant singers, choir members, music leaders and instrumentalists.


THEMES

As we trial a new LJ Siddur this is a good moment to consider how our LJ music reflects our texts: how can we keep our heritage music with new texts; how to reflect the meaning and mood of text when composing new tunes.

We now have so many options for styles of music: nusach, hazzanut, traditional liberal choral, ‘folk’ melody, etc; and instruments such as organ versus piano, guitars and violins to saxophones, how do we choose what to use and when?

With a decline in general music literacy, how can we best encourage congregational singing. Likewise ‘traditional’ organs are losing popularity, so how best can we accompany the singing without losing our Liberal Heritage?

The Cantor, a new role in Liberal Jewish services and Communities.
