Shir Joy Chorus is an adult, transdenominational community chorus, under the direction of Nan A. Kaipainen Gibbons, dedicated to learning, sharing, and performing Jewish music from the rich and varied Judaic cultures of Israel and the Jewish Diaspora. Founded in 2011, it is an independent nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, funded by the Jewish Federation of Central Massachusetts, the Westborough Cultural Council and the Worcester Arts Council (members of the Massachusetts Cultural Council), and private supporters. Congregation B'nai Shalom generously donates rehearsal and performance space. The chorus is non-auditioned and is open to all people regardless of ethnicity or religious background.

Shir Joy is a musical organization dedicated to raising awareness and appreciation of the breadth and beauty of Jewish culture through performances and related activities. In addition to its two annual concerts at Congregation Bnai Shalom in Westborough, the Chorus performs at other venues such as Arts in Common in Westborough (for the Westborough Cultural Council),the Jewish Federation of Central Massachusetts' annual meeting, the annual community-wide Yom Hashoah Commemoration, Northborough Community Meals, and the Interfaith Concert in Westborough and Communities of Songs Concert in Worcester, both of which benefit the MA Pastoral Counseling Centers.
