Partnership with Taylor Festival Choir


Taylor Festival Choir logo

Roots of Reform Judaism has partnered with the Taylor Festival Choir (TFC) to produce virtual recordings of High Holy Day choir music for the holy days. 24 Singers recorded parts for 10 pieces by Janowski, Steinberg, Fromm, Bloch, and more; then the pieces were mixed into virtual choir recordings. One of our Roots of Reform Judaism Cantorial Soloists, Bates O'Neal, a member of The Taylor Festival Choir, is featured as well on these recordings.


Led by founding director Dr. Robert Taylor, TFC is part of the Taylor Music Group based in Charleston, South Carolina, and serves as the professional choir-in-residence at the College of Charleston. It presents a full concert season in the Charleston area, and serves as the flagship ensemble for the Piccolo Spoleto Celtic Arts Series. The Choir has a brand new CD, So Hallow'd the Time, released in July 2020. The CD is under consideration for two Grammy Awards: Best Choral Performance and Best New Composition.
