The Colorado Hebrew Chorale presents its annual free musical program, the Evening of Hebrew Round-Singing in the Sukkah, on Thursday evening, October 4, 2012, 7:30 p.m., at the Hebrew Educational Alliance, 3600 South Ivanhoe Street, Denver CO 80237. Sukkot, the Jewish Holiday of Booths, which begins on Sunday evening, September 30, 2012, is the week-long festival time when families and friends gather in temporary huts for meals and fellowship. For over a decade, Colorado Hebrew Chorale's Evening of Hebrew Round-Singing has brought the element of instant music-making together with the food and fun.
This year's program includes musical tributes to Debbie Friedman, who died in 2011, and to Hal David and Marvin Hamlisch, who both passed away earlier this year. The evening will conclude with holiday songs, Israeli favorites, and a salute to Allan Sherman ("Hello Mudda, Hello Fadda").
For many years, the Colorado Hebrew Chorale has linked this Sukkah Singing with the Daniel Pearl Music Days, a worldwide program created by the Pearl family to promote tolerance and peace through the power of music. Journalist Daniel Pearl was executed in Pakistan in 2002.
