Adult Choir

The Adult Choir is open to any member of Temple Beth David, age 13 or above who likes to sing. We rehearse most Monday evenings from 7:15 PM to 9:00 PM. Under the direction of our Cantorial Soloist Nancy Linder with assistance by Sharon Matalon and Rob Woyshner at the piano, the choir sings every second Friday night of the month for our Choir Shabbat service.

The choir also sings for the High Holidays, Hanukkah, our Purim Shpiel, Yom Hashoah, Confirmation and for Bar and Bat Mitzvah services if a family requests them.

Beth David is known for our fantastic music program, and the adult volunteer choir is one of the best in Southern California.
