15th Cantors Convention

Monday 6th November 2023 | 8:00 am Saturday 11th November 2023 | 5:00 pm

15th Cantors Convention is in Hannover from 6 – 11 November 2023
A gathering for all those who love the music of Jewish prayer. Theme: Togetherness.

The next ECA Convention takes place in the beautiful Villa Seligmann in Hannover from the evening of Monday 6th November 2023 to late night on Motzei Shabbat 11th November, after the Gala concert. 

An outstanding selection of presenters and a full programme with very special and historical firsts. There will be opportunities to sing, to be entertained and to take an active part in the programme. 

As well as the packed programme, filled with renowned presentations, panel discussions, masterclasses and creative choral workshops, the ECA Conference will be joining with the Jewish Community of Lower Saxony on Thursday 8th November, to commemorate, the 85th anniversary of what they now recognise in Germany as the terrible Reichspogromnacht or the November Pogrom (Kristallnacht). 

In an historic event, Cantor Asher Hainovitz will relate his family’s Holocaust story in the Parliament Chamber of Lower Saxony and together everyone we will sing appropriate Tehillim. 

We will also be present the same day when students acknowledge the atrocity at the site of The Great Synagogue which went up in flames.  And our convention has been invited to give the first Jewish concert at the University City of Lüneburg.
