Kolot HaLev - Voices of the Heart - embodies the love of music and the community of people who come together every Thursday evening to learn new music and sing together as one voice. We thrive in seeing the happiness on the faces of our concert audiences, the excitement in the air, and the explosion of applause and bravo’s!


Kolot HaLev has performed in various venues, including the North American Jewish Choral Festival, the Jewish Heritage Museum in New York City, Arlington National Cemetery, and elsewhere in the DC area.


Our mission is to recover the treasures of Jewish music that have disappeared from our communities and bring them back for everyone to hear and enjoy, as well as to acquaint audiences with newly composed inspiring Jewish choral music.


Through our music, we aspire to build bridges between denominations through the experience and spirituality of this profoundly moving choral music.


Audiences have been pleasantly surprised that a community choir, without auditions, sings sophisticated and varied music at such a high level.
