Menorah Synagogue is hosting two March events, including its fifth Choral Extravaganza concert.
Menorah Synagogue will host its fifth Choral Extravaganza concert on 18th March. The event, an evening of song where choirs, musicians and singers from different communities come together to display their skills including performing a special finalé, has become a tradition at the synagogue.
Joining the Menorah Synagogue Choir this year will be the Mriya Ukrainian Mixed Voice Choir, the Mandarin Fellowship Choir and the Siddique Group from the Azeemia Sufi Order Muslims.
Vicki Garson of Menorah said of the musical event: “Every Choral Extravaganza has had its own character and the fifth one is promising to be unique, different and an evening to remember.”
Menorah is also hosting an ovarian cancer awareness event. One in 40 women of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage are at risk of developing the cancer, so the synagogue is partnering with the charity Tic Toc Ovarian Cancer Awareness to help people find out more about the disease.
The awareness evening takes place on 14th March and will be chaired by Dr Sarah Carlick, ambassador for the charity Target Ovarian Cancer. The special guest speakers will be Gordon Jayson, professor of Medical Oncology at the University of Manchester and Christie Hospital, and Dr Ian Ellis, consultant clinical geneticist at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and senior lecturer in Clinical Genetics at the University of Liverpool.
