The Sheba Ensemble, a quintet of classically trained women musicians, is committed to Jewish music with a contemporary feminine flair. The ensemble’s music reflects a unique intersection of the styles that influence Jewish music. From classical Jewish repertoire to Bossa Nova, Pop to rock, Jazz to Broadway, traditional and modern Israeli, the Sheba Ensemble presents a special musical experience in performances across the United States and Europe, with an emphasis on the powerful female figures who have marked Jewish history. The group’s concerts are a moving combination of song and music that makes its listeners feel connected to the rich heritage of Jewish women who have come before them.
The program features performances of traditional repertoire and original compositions by members of the Sheba Ensemble and other prominent composers. Compositions in Ladino, Hebrew, Yiddish and English are included in the program.
