Our Adult Choir, "The Voice of Hope," meets 2-3 Tuesday evenings each month, from 7:30-9:00pm and continues to warmly embrace new members at all times of the year. Prospective members do not have to be proficient music readers, but they must be able to sing in tune. Training is part of the Kol Tikvah experience.

Activities include worship and off-site concerts and festivals. At rehearsals, you can witness volunteers from all walks of life pouring their hearts and souls into song for high purpose. This group of talented and vibrant individuals forms the cornerstone of formal music at Beth Tikvah.

Purim Chorale

Those who “sing” for Purim

Purim Spiel 2

Purim Chorale is our annual forage into "voices of all kinds" as we sing parodies for the pruim service. Maybe you like to sing and perform but your family thinks you don’t sound so good? This is the group for you. All are welcome. This usually includes costumes and lots of fun!

T'filah Group

Adults & Post-B'nei Mitzvah

Want to learn Shabbat melodies before the service? Want to spontaneously harmonize and/or improvise on old and new melodies? Want to do this in a setting that is NOT a rehearsal, rather an intimate and unique music-making session? Don't be bashful. Bring your voices, and/or your skilled instruments, and your spirits. Or, just come to listen.

The second Friday of each month, beginning November 11, 2016, from 6:30-7:30 pm.
