Chords of Glory – Performance with a Purpose

Chords of Glory – Performance with a Purpose

Chords of Glory, and inclusive program for middle and high school students (6th-12th grades) in the Greater Washington, DC area – and not exclusively from Adat Shalom.

The group meets weekly for 2-hour meetings in a workshop setting, during which participants work on a variety of songs, scenes from musical theater, and other offerings. Once a repertoire is set, the group travels to and performs at area senior centers, shelters, group homes, rehab facilities and other venues.

Meetings are held on Sundays from 3:15 PM – 5:15 PM, mid-September through mid-June, at Adat Shalom Reconstructionist Congregation: 7727 Persimmon Tree Lane, Bethesda, MD.

Every effort will be made to schedule performances during the workshop hours.

There is a fee of $350.00 per year per student to participate on this program (scholarships are available).
