From Sruli’s extensive repertoire of contemplative and lively Old World Hasidic melodies. This year, we will focus on traditional Hasidic and Yeshivish Shabbes nigunim and Zmires (Sabbath table songs) as well as traditional Khasene (wedding) repertoire. Some lively, some contemplative, and always deep and powerful. Texts and transliterations will be provided. This is the perfect class if you would like to center your day with meditative communal singing and/or to bring back some very special musical pieces to your communities. Participants are encouraged to share their favorite nigunim as well. Although this is a vocal workshop, instrumentalists will get a lot out of this class as well. Class participants will perform and lead these nigunim at the Friday night Tish.
