Upgrade Our Equipment

$1,600 of $4,000 goal

Kol Rinah, the Jewish Chorale of Westchester, was started in April of 2001.  Since that time, we've performed in dozens of venues from outdoor festivals to nursing homes to synagogues to museums to schools to county legislative events.  At nearly every event, we come prepared with all of our own equipment, from microphones and stands to a keyboard and mixer.

The problem is all of that shlepping has left some of our equipment in less than ideal condition.  The music holder on our keyboard is broken.  The keyboard keys don't have the quick action that they should.  Our mixer is limited.  Our keyboard case is torn. 

It's time to upgrade!  Kol Rinah is proud to bring the joy, the complexity, the range of music by Jewish composers or representing Jewish themes to the wider community, but we can't sound our best without your help.

We'd like to buy a new mixer and case and a new keyboard, case, and pedal.  Can you help?

Can you make a donation and become part of Kol Rinah's mission to share live Jewish music with the tri-state area?

We want to thank our generous donors who contributed to enable Kol Rinah to purchase the equipment we hoped for. Because of these donations - both on this GoFundMe site as well as by check directly to Kol Rinah - we purchased the keyboard, case, and mixer in time for our spring concert. What a difference it made to our sound! We did use some money from our budget to buy the equipment so we'll be a little tight next year. So if you want to help us out by continuing to contribute, we won't object! We promise to use every dollar we receive thoughtfully and in service of our mission: to enhance Jewish cultural expression as we bring the full range of Jewish music to Westchester, Rockland, and surrounding communities through our live and recorded performances. Thank you for supporting our vision. (Here's a video from our spring concert.)

I think Kol Rinah sounded pretty good at our recent Chanukah concert. Imagine how much better we'll sound with a new keyboard and mixer! Please donate today so we can replace our outdated equipment before our spring concert on April 28th!

Did you see the nifty new keyboard we'd like to purchase? Our conductor, assistant conductor, and accompanyist went far and wide testing out keyboards for sound, natural-feeling key action, compatibility with our other equipment and more - and this keyboard was the winner! Can you help us to buy it?
