Winnipeg Jewish Chorus (Volunteer) - Returning in 2022

This inclusive community choir under the direction of Justin Odwak was formed in 2018 as a way of bringing people together for the love of singing! Participants include Jews and non-Jews, members and non-members of Shaarey Zedek, experienced and unexperienced singers, and others, and is dedicated to the performance of Jewish choral music, and other repertoire including pop, classical, contemporary, gospel, and world music. The programming year begins in the early Fall with rehearsals held weekly on Tuesday evenings through to the end of Spring (with some breaks). The choir then shares their music with two or more concerts each year. No audition is required to be part of the choir, and there are opportunities to join throughout the year.

Dor Chadash Youth Choir (Volunteer) - Returning in 2022

Created in 2013 and directed by Rabbi Aníbal Mass, this free afterschool youth choir is designed for boys and girls ages 8 to 17 to explore Jewish music together -- Shaarey Zedek members and non-members alike. Meeting weekly, this group is an opportunity for kids of varying skills to unite and sing, enjoy a meal together, and most importantly, have fun! Participants will perform at concerts and during holiday events in the year, and take part in studio recordings.
