Kol Arts Music & Arts Program – July

 

From our Director

It is with the greatest pleasure that I am introducing the Kol Arts Program to Congregation Kol Ami and the broader community. Thank you to Cantor David Rosen, Jessica Lorden, Executive Director  and the Board of Directors of Congregation Kol Ami for this unique opportunity to blend music and arts with the vibrant culture at the temple.  

Kol Arts is about enriching lives through music and art, discovering and nurturing talents, and blending individuality with community. The distinguished faculty has been selected from the broad spectrum of artists in the metropolitan area. Creativity abounds as collaborations between genres are cultivated. 

As a performing violist and teaching artist, creating community through the arts has always been my greatest passion. I cherish nurturing friendships as artistry develops and lifelong connections flourish.

Please browse through our Summer Class List and meet the faculty. Custom programming is also available upon request.

Hope you join us for a variety of artistic explorations!
