Shabbat Shirah Concert with Joey Weisenberg & The Hadar Ensemble

BZBI is excited to host a special performance of sacred music by Joey Weisenberg & The Hadar Ensemble. Joey’s heart-stirring nigunim (melodies) and the recordings of the Hadar Ensemble have become popular worldwide. The Hadar Ensemble’s participatory concerts are intimate and rousing experiences. You won’t want to miss their Philadelphia premiere.

Tickets will be $18 at the door, $13 in advance.

Joey Weisenberg and the Hadar Ensemble perform “New Brooklyn Jewish Music.” You’ll hear traditional inspired Jewish melodies, chants, and prayers blended with the sounds of contemporary Brooklyn: jazz, Balkan, soul, flamenco, bluegrass, and more.

Musician, prayer leader, author, and teacher, Joey Weisenberg is the Creative Director of Mechon Hadar’s Rising Song Institute, which aims to cultivate the grassroots musical-spiritual creativity of the Jewish people. Joey works to educate and train communities around the world to unlock their musical-spiritual potential and make music a lasting joy­-filled force in synagogues and in Jewish life. Joey leads workshops and trainings across the country, including the Singing Communities Intensive each December at Mechon Hadar. He is the author of recently released Torah of Music, as well as Building Singing Communities, Nigunim: The Songbook and The Kane Street Songster. He has recorded six albums, most recently By the Waters of Babylon. Joey’s nigunim have become popular worldwide.
