Families can enjoy an evening of show tunes Saturday at a free interfaith concert at Temple Sholom in Greenwich. More than 100 young people from local church and synagogue choirs are expected to perform.
Casa Asa Fradkin of Temple Sholom has been working on the event for several months and said this year he looked beyond the synagogue for singers.
We felt that by including our interfaith neighbors we were able to tap into additional talent in our community, he said, and by having multiple age groups singing from multiple congregations that the concert would truly be a community effort.
This years concert will include choirs from Temple Sholom, Christ Church , Second Congregational Church , St. Michaels Church and Greenwich Catholic School . The choirs are planning to perform an eclectic mix appropriate for all ages, from the contemporary Seasons of Love out of Rent to the classic Getting to Know You from The King and I.
Additional performers in the revue include Fradkin, Sarah Fradkin, up-and-coming Broadway actress Eva Burger, Sarah Guest, Temple Sholom members Gabi Sussman and Maida Lowin and Amy Buckley from Jewels by Viggi.
The concert is being made possible by the Sholom Center, an interfaith partnership between Christ Church and Temple Sholom. It is sponsored by Jewels by Viggi , a fine jewelry boutique on Greenwich Ave.
Tickets are not necessary for the concert, which will be held Saturday, Jan. 22, at 7:30 at Temple Sholom, 300 E. Putnam Ave., Greenwich. For more information about the Interfaith Broadway Concert, contact Alice Schoen at Temple Sholom at (203) 542-7165.
