Established in 2009, the TE Band has become an integral part of the musical fabric of Temple Emanuel.  The musicians, ranging in age from middle school to retired folks, and ranging in ability from intermediate students to professionals, represent a wonderful cross section of the TE community.  The band, directed by Laurel Shader, plays at Kabbalat Shabbat services several times each year and at various special events and celebrations.  The band’s repertoire includes traditional melodies and contemporary tunes.
