Berakah Players Return to West London Synagogue on Sunday, June 4th 2017

In April 2016 we played the final concert of our tour of England with a wonderful night at West London Synagogue, the oldest synagogue affiliated with the Movement for Reform Judaism and is one of the oldest synagogues in the United Kingdom. It was a spectacular concert with a very special atmosphere and we are delighted to be invited back this year for what is more than likely to be the only significant concert by The Berakah Players ensemble in London this year. The Sing for Peace Choir and our Increase The Peace youth band perform regularly throughout the year but The Berakah Players concerts are a somewhat more rarified event so if you’ve missed us on the last tour please put this date in your diary and take advantage of the early bird ticket prices.   The ERETZ Programme of West London Synagogue presents THE BERAKAH PLAYERS     Law, Love, Life – a concert celebrating people coming together in trying times Sunday 4th June 2017 West London Synagogue, 34 Upper Berkeley Street, W1H 5QE Nearest Tube: Marble Arch   £8 – EARLY BIRD TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE UNTIL 31 MARCH   In April 2016, The Berakah Players made its...

Sing for Peace – Spring Concert with special guests guests – The Parkshot Singers- 28/03/17

The Sing for Peace Choir end the Spring term at Richmond Adult Community College with a special concert this time with guests – The Parkshot Singers! Led by Janet Oates TPS are another choir based at RACC and we’re very grateful for the support from RACC and the opportunity to sing that we have as a result of being part of the college community. As part of the community remit of the SFP Choir since last summer we’ve been singing once a month at a dinner held by the local Alzheimer’s Society for sufferers of Alzheimers and their carers. It’s a heartwarming night and the choir love being involved because it’s plain to see how the music brings smiles to the faces of all the people at the event. After our performance we help to lead the guests in a sing along of songs chosen by them. It’s a truly rewarding night for the choir members who give up their night to come and it means that Berakah is helping people at the heart of the community, using music to help make them happy.
