The Hallel Lecture
Cantor Benjamin Maissner
Cantor Beny Maissner is back! This time he’s sharing everything you want to know about Hallel, the beautiful psalms which we recite on joyous festivals and Rosh Chodesh. With live demonstrations, Cantor Maissner will explore the wide variety of Hallel music throughout the centuries - from the rich choral traditions and community singing, to authentic Chazzanut of the Golden Age of the Cantorate.
Accompanied by Nadia Adler, piano
