Congregation Kol Ami is known for its music, which is expansive and inclusive in every way. In a typical Shabbat service, congregants will join the musicians in singing at least a dozen prayers as a community.  We include music written by Jewish composers today as well as composers of our past. It’s not unusual to hear one prayer composed by a hip-hop musician followed by another melody that’s several hundred years old. The musicians, who usually rehearse before each service, come from a wide variety of backgrounds, ranging from those who are self-taught to those with conservatory training in classical music, jazz, folk music, rock, pop and musical theater. If you want to join the ensemble, let us know.

The musicians sing and play during the High Holy Days, Shabbat services and special holiday observances such as Simchat Torah, Chanukah and Purim. They are often invited to take part in area-wide Jewish gatherings and interfaith services, bar and bat mitzvahs, weddings and other events.
