Seit Generationen kommen Kinder mit ihren Eltern in die Synagoge Pestalozzistraße. Die Gottesdienste sind hier durch das Zusammenspiel von Kantor, Chor sowie Orgel und vor allem von der Musik Louis Lewandowskis geprägt.

JUGENDCHOR SYNAGOGE PESTALOZZISTRASSE

For generations children have been coming to the synagogue in Pestalozzistraße with their parents. Here, the synagogue service is an interaction between cantor, choir and organ as well as Lewandowski’s music which plays a central role.

Der Leipziger Synagogalchor widmet sich intensiv und engagiert der Pflege jüdischer Musik. Die 35 Sängerinnen und Sänger – sämtlich Nichtjuden – bringen seit der Chorgründung 1962 jene Musik auf die Konzertpodien der Welt, die ihre Vorfahren beinahe vollständig vernichtet hätten.

LEIPZIGER SYNAGOGALCHOR

Jewish music in the Ashkenazi Diaspora was flourishing incomparably during the 19th and beginnings of the 20th century; a phenomenon primarily caused by organ building in liberal synagogues in Central Europe.

ENSEMBLE PROFETI DELLA QUINTA

The ensemble was founded in the Galilee region of Israel by Elam Rotem. It is currently based in Switzerland, where its members undertook further study at the Schola Cantorum in Basel.

The Lewandowski Chorale ist ein in Johannesburg ansässiger Chor. Das Ensemble widmet sich der Wiederbelebung der klassischen jüdisch-liturgischen Musik sowohl innerhalb der südafrikanischen jüdischen Gemeinde als auch in der Gemeinschaft als Ganzes.

THE LEWANDOWSKI CHORALE

The majority of South African synagogues are orthodox and do not allow women to partake in singing. This means that even though the tunes of Lewandowski and his contemporaries are still widely sung in these synagogues, the original texture and harmonies are often lost.

BELSIZE YOUTH CHOIR

BELSIZE YOUTH CHOIR

The youth choir "Belsize Youth Choir" was founded in 1950 by Hanni & Paul Lichtenstern and has been directed by music director Sue Mariner ever since. Since Sue Mariner retired, Alyson Denza has been the driving force behind the choir.

Synagogal Ensemble Berlin

The Synagogal Ensemble Berlin was founded in 2002 as a concert ensemble by Regina Yantian and cantor Isaac Sheffer. It consists of eight to 16 professional singers, who work at international opera houses and as freelance concert singers in the choir of Pestalozzistraße synagogue in Berlin.
