Musical Kabbalat Shabbat Loses a Maestro

Kabba Shabba loses maestro

Last Friday night’s eco-vegetarian (read: bring your own utensils and a veggie dish to share) kabbalat shabbat was a big crowd pleaser for the fifty synagogue members, friends and visitors in attendance. The kabbalat shabbat service was accompanied by our wonderful musical group, the Kabba Shabba Band, consisting of violins, guitar, harp, drums, singers and others. Kids were invited to perform dance routines with Rabbi Harry, and adults later formed a dancing chain. It was also a last performance for synagogue and veteran band member Dániel Péter Biró.

Sadly Dr. Biró, a UVic Professor of Music and renowned new music composer, organizer of the SALT New Music Festival, and a recent winner of a major Guggenheim fellowship, is departing for new horizons at the University of Bergen, Norway, where he has been hired to lead the experimental new music program. We wish Dániel, his wife Zsofia Surjan, and their son Dávid (a recent Emanu-El bar mitzvah), well on their journey north and eastward. They will be greatly missed. We hope to hear news of their flourishing new life in Norway!
