Cantillation for Megillat Esther
February 28, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
In person or on Zoom!
This 8 week class will allow learners the chance to become proficient at chanting from Megillat Esther (The Scroll of Esther), which is chanted on Erev Purim as well as Purim morning (March 6th-7th this year). The cantillation (trop) for the Book of Esther is one of the most melodic and evocative of the 6 major cantillation systems. This class will provide resources including sheet music as well as audio recordings, meeting the needs and learning styles of all learners. Ability to read Biblical Hebrew is a prerequisite, as well as some experience and familiarity with the cantillation (trop) symbols, (i.e. from chanting Torah and/or Haftarah). Each member of the class will be invited to learn a portion of their own choosing (and desired length) for Erev Purim this year.
