Music

Our Music Director, Teddy Klaus, and Worship Music Artist, Debra Winter, work closely with the rabbis to create a worship service that is a bridge from the work week to Shabbat time and space.

“The music of Temple Micah is the heart of the congregation.  We strive to create an American Jewish sound which deepens our prayer experience and carries our spirits.  Our music is an eclectic mix of sounds.  We draw on a diversity of 19th, 20th, and 21st century composers, from the sounds of New Orleans Jazz to Naomi Shemer; from Shlomo Carlebach to Craig Taubman, all while serving the dynamic worship that is Micah.”  -Music Director Teddy Klaus

Participate in Micah’s Music

The vibrancy of Temple Micah stems from the participation of our members. We invite you to join in leading the music of our worship, lending your voice in our choir, or playing an instrument in our pick-up band. To get involved or learn more, contact Music Director Teddy Klaus.

Adult Choir

Bring your voice to Micah’s music! All are welcome to join our Adult Choir by attending a Thursday night rehearsal. No auditions. Adult Choir sings at b’nai mitzvah and special Shabbat services and events throughout the school year. The choir rehearses the first and third Thursday of the month during the school year at 7 pm, as well as just before the special services in which they participate. To get involved or learn more, contact Music Director Teddy Klaus

Youth Choir

We want to hear the voices of our youth in worship with the community, and our Youth Choir (children in grades 2-4) is part of that mission. Youth Choir rehearses during Sunday Machon Micah. The choir sings at the Kabbalat Shabbat service on the first Friday of the month following a 6 pm rehearsal.  After the service, choir members and their families share a festive Shabbat dinner at the Temple. To get involved or to learn more, contact Music Director Teddy Klaus

Pick-up Band

Once a month, the music at Kabbalat Shabbat services is enhanced by the Temple Micah Pick-up Band. We usually feature flute, violin, clarinet, and percussion. To get involved or to learn more, contact Music Director Teddy Klaus
