Philadelphia's Premier Jewish Choral Ensemble

Nashirah enters its fifteenth year as the only auditioned, community-based chorale in the Greater Philadelphia performing exclusively Jewish and Jewish-themed music. Our distinct musical programming embodies the broadest possible range of Jewish repertoire; bringing together choral music of many lands, languages, and cultures. Nashirah's unique performances offer wonderfully diverse music spanning the borders of many continents and the boundaries of time. Always striving for the highest degree of musicianship, we infuse our performances with neshama - "soul" - by which we touch the hearts of our audiences.

Nashirah's singers come from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. We hail from all walks of life, and we are united by a commitment to musical excellence, a love of singing Jewish choral music, and a special desire to openly share; enabling all listeners to experience the great beauty of the Jewish musical tradition. Nashirah is delighted to have the opportunity to express this beautiful art form, and we are proud to be the seminal chorale of its type in the Philadelphia area.
