Music is an integral part of life at Temple Sinai and plays an important role in enhancing worship at all of our services. Senior Cantor Laura Croen heads our music staff, which includes Cantorial Soloist Robyn Helzner, Cantor Educator Rebecca Robins, and accompanist Neil Weston. The adult and junior choirs and in-house band Middle Matzah Conspiracy, are “labors of love” whose members volunteer their time and talents. The Music Committee collaborates with Cantor Croen to bring a wide range of musical programs to our community.
Circle of Music Lovers
If you have yet to do so, please join the 2019 Circle of Music Lovers with a donation to the Temple Sinai Music Fund. The Circle of Music Lovers generously supports music programming at Temple Sinai, making diverse, high quality music events possible. All contributions are deeply appreciated.
Temple Sinai Choirs
The adult choir sings traditional and contemporary music for all the sanctuary High Holiday services as well as special events throughout the year. While many choir members have sung together for years, new participants are always welcome! The adult choir is open to all temple members of post-Confirmation age. It isn’t necessary to be able to read music or to audition to join the choir, just to be able to sing in tune. Interested in joining? Contact Rachel Hynes, assistant to Cantor Laura Croen.
The Junior Choir, for students in grades 4-6, meets Sunday mornings during Religious School.
Middle Matzah Conspiracy
Middle Matzah Conspiracy (MMC), Temple Sinai’s in-house band, brings lively jazz, as well as traditional and contemporary music to services and temple events. If you play an instrument, belong to Temple Sinai, and are post-Confirmation age, MMC is always accepting new members.
