The repertoire for this atelier will be mostly Israeli Music. Israeli singing is characterized by beautiful melodies, sometimes melancholy and sometimes rhythmic with ethnic and folk dance influences. The influences on Israeli music are from the Bible, from traditional Jewish singing and from the unique way of life in Israel: love of nature, the joy of life, along with war, bereavement and pain. Being a country of immigrants from all over the world, those different cultures brought with them a variety of different influences on the Israeli music; singing is versatile and is an integral part of our lives. The repertoire will be available for you to perform later with your own choirs. One of the compositions we will be working on will be "Jerusalem Calling" with the composer Eyal Bat.
