The Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art hosts Sacred Harp singing, a unique musical encounter in the exhibition "Preaching to the Choir"
Sacred Harp is a participatory singing encounter. In these exceptional democratic singing encounters - in the spirit of the American Sacred Harp tradition of inclusive, democratic communal singing of sacred choral music - the public is invited to join in the singing or just listen. The project was initiated in Israel by Noam Inbar and Ophir Ilzetzki. In Israel, as elsewhere around the world, these encounters include not only old songs but also new translations and texts written to old music, as
well as entirely new songs in dialogue with this musical style.
Please register in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org. Included in the museum's entrance fee

Closing Event, starting at 7 pm
The closing event of the museum's current exhibitions will include a jam session following a research workshop on political choirs held by the Italian artist Luigi Coppola, a participant in the exhibition "Preaching to the Choir."
Coppola, based in Brussels, Belgium, and Lecce, Italy, conducts such workshops in different places around the world, always exploring local connections between politics and music. In Israel, the workshop (supported by ArtPort), based on local musical traditions, will include collaborations with artists, musicians, musical groups, political and social activists, traditional choirs, poets, and storytellers.
(List of participants to be published. Participation by invitation only.)
The workshop will be concluded with a live performance by the participants, which will be open to the public at the Museum.
