November 21, 2019: An unprecedented musical celebration of Chanukah, the annual Jewish Festival of Lights open to the public, comes to Temple Emanu-El in Sandy Springs on December 15 at 4pm.

It features a choir of all-star singers from Atlanta area synagogues and churches with four talented soloists, all accompanied by an orchestra from The William Baker Choral Foundation. 

The choir will alternately be led by Ms. Amy Thropp and Emanu-El’s Choir Conductor, Melissa Fontaine. The four soloists are Jonathan Pilkington, Laurie Swann, Andrew Schmidt and Emanu-El’s Cantor Adesnik.

The performance will feature selections from the 18th century oratorio “Judas Maccabeus” composed by George Frederic Handel. Based on a biblical text, the music and singers of this composition tell the story of Chanukah.
