CMI uses a mixture of traditional and contemporary tunes in services. To enhance the musical experience, Cantor encourages volunteer and professional singers and musicians to join him for a solo, duet or as accompanist. Listen here.
Singers of all ages are invited to join CMI Chorale. The choir sings at the High Holy Days and at Shabbat services. Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. Adults who are Bar/Bat Mitzvah age or older who love to sing are invited to join and help swell the ranks to make the CMI Chorale a wonder to see and hear. All you need is a love of music and a desire to raise the ruach (spirit) of services.
The Junior Choir meets during Religious School on Sundays. The choir is open to all students in 2nd grade and above who want to be a special voice of joy to stir the spiritual souls of our families and friends. The Junior Choir sings at all Family Services and major holiday events.
