On Sunday, January 28, 2024, the VocalEssence Singers Of This Age joined a consortium of choirs from around the Twin Cities in a song share celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Beth El Synagogue in St. Louis Park.
The mood was festive as songs were sung in myriad languages and ensembles positioned all around the space to contribute their voices to the celebration. Internationally renowned song leader Nick Page led much of the program, with various maestros—including our own G. Phillip Shoultz, III—conducting their own choirs.
With nearly 800 people filling the hall, it was most certainly the momentous occasion a 100 year anniversary deserves! Members of the VocalEssence Singers Of This Age took a moment to reflect and share what resonated with them about participating in this event. Watch the video below to hear their thoughts.
Congratulations to the Beth El community for 100 years!
