The “Liturgi-Kal” concert choir was founded in 2009 and includes singers from all over Israel. The choir presents liturgical music either written in, or translated to, the Hebrew language. In the few years of the choir’s existence Liturgi-Kal is rapidly becoming much more visible on the Israeli music scene due to its emphasis on excellence coupled with the superb choice of musical partners. The choir has worked with the Israeli Chamber orchestra, the Ensemble Barrocade and has had the honor of hosting some of Israel’s finest young singers as well as special guests from abroad. [See the ‘About Singers’ for more information.]
The choir is in the process of building its repertoire of works in the original languages, and most importantly, in Hebrew versions. Liturgi-Kal now offers three concert programs a year. The original piece performed by the choir, Handel’s Messiah in Hebrew, has become a yearly tradition in Jerusalem. In addition, Liturgi-Kal has performed works by Vivaldi, Bach, John Rutter, Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Arvo Pärt and Johannes Brahms.
