On May 27, 2011, the choir of Congregation Beth Ahabah will debut the musical compositions of Niccolo Seligmann, '11. Niccolo composed a complete Shabbath service as part of his Senior Mentorship, in which he researched music in Reform Jewish religious practice under the guidance of Beth Ahabah's Cantor Annie Bornstein. While Niccolo's music will be part of the temple's regular Friday night observances, people of all faiths are welcome to attend and hear this world premiere. The works are for soloists, choir, piano, strings and percussion. The service takes place on May 27 at 7:30 pm at Congregation Beth Ahabah, 1111 W. Franklin Street, just blocks from Maggie Walker.
