HaZamir Alumni span 20 years! Our HaZamir alumni have gone on to spend time in Israel, serve in the IDF, study in colleges and universities around the world while maintaining a strong connection to Jewish life and Jewish music. We are proud to say that many of our HaZamir Alumni have taken on leadership positions in their communities and many have become leaders in the Jewish musical world as cantors, conductors, composers and choral singers. Some HaZamir Alumni are now parents and are looking forward to having their children take their places on the stage.
In 2012, a group of alumni met to form an Alumni Committee with a mission of reaching HaZamir Alumni around the world and recruiting them to sing in the 20th Anniversary Gala Concert as the largest HaZamir Alumni Choir yet. Members of this committee include Avi Eisen, Penina Francus, Zoe Grossman, Adva Hanan, Chris Mason and Lauren Phillips. Thanks to Facebook and other media of today, many alumni have been found all over the world and are in touch with the HaZamir National Office.
As a result of these efforts, sixty HaZamir Alumni came from across the United States and even as far as Israel to sing on the Jazz at Lincoln Center stage on March 17th, 2013.
We are so proud of our HaZamir Alumni and are so pleased that so many come back to sing with HaZamir at the Annual Gala Concerts in New York every year.
We look forward to having even more HaZamir Alumni join us this year in Carnegie Hall on March 30, 2014.
