Since its inception in fall 2013, Music Director and Founder, Leah Peer envisioned Kol Nashim, the women’s choir of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale, as a community of women, making music in support of the larger community of women. “There was always an idea to conclude our season with a benefit concert on behalf of a women’s charity”, says Peer.
In May 2014, the first Kol Nashim benefit concert “Woman to Woman” took place at Congregation Rodef Shalom in Denver, raising $1,400 for the Shelter. In May 2015, two concerts were held – one at Congregation B’nai Chaim in Morrison, and the second at the Hebrew Educational Alliance in Denver, and raised $2,800, which were matched by an anonymous donor. This year, Kol Nashim will perform its “Woman to Woman” concert on Sunday afternoon, May 22, 2016 at Beth Evergreen in Evergreen, west of Denver, and on Thursday evening, May 26, 2016 at Temple Sinai in Denver.
