Happiness is singing in the choir
Shir Chants and Shir Tzion sing at a concert at Mount Zion.
Shir Tzion, for 3rd through 6th graders
Meets Sunday mornings when there is Religious School, 9:00-9:30 a.m.
Participates in services the first Friday of every month.
Open to all students in Grades 3-6, Mount Zion’s children’s choir is one of the congregation’s finest treasures. This choir rehearses in the sanctuary every Sunday, 9:00-9:30 a.m., when there is Religious School. Directed by Cantor Spilker and accompanied by Maya Goldbaum, Shir Tzion sings the first Friday of every month for the 6:30 pm Shabbat services. The choir also performs at special programs and concerts. It is a wonderful way for students to learn prayers, strengthen their Hebrew skills, and expand their Jewish music repertoire while serving the congregation and having fun! Contact Cantor Spilker if you are interested.
Seventh Grade Ensemble
Seventh grade graduates of Shir Tzion will have the opportunity to work with Cantor Spilker on some repertoire to sing at each others’ B’nei Mitzvah. She will be in touch with you to work out scheduling rehearsals. Contact Cantor Spilker if you are interested.
Shir Chants, for 7th through 12th graders
Meets Sunday mornings when there is Religious School, 8:45-9:15 a.m.

Open to all students in Grades 7-12, this teen ensemble was designed for those who enjoy singing or playing instruments in the synagogue and want to continue beyond Shir Tzion. Rehearsals are on Sunday mornings before Religious School from 8:45-9:15 a.m. and we sing for special Shabbatot, High Holy Day, and festival services.

Kol Tzion (formerly Torah Tones), for adults
Kol Tzion, Mount Zion’s adult volunteer choir, sings at a variety of occasions throughout the year including the High Holy Days, Friday night Shabbat services, Festival morning services, and special events. There is no audition required, just a love of singing with a committed and fun group of people! Kol Tzion rehearses on Wednesdays during the school year from 7:30-8:30 pm.
