The Annual HaZamir Festival is a weekend event that is the highlight of the year for many HaZamir singers. HaZamir singers representing all HaZamir chapters, along with their conductors, coordinators and parent chaperones attend this event. It is a weekend of intensive practice, bonding, in preparation for the Gala Concert.
This year, the HaZamir Festival will take place on Thursday, March 23rd, and conclude on Sunday March 26th, with a grand concert at David Geffen Hall, Lincoln Center, NYC.
HaZamirniks, their conductors and chaperones spend their time in rehearsals, social settings and a shared wonderful shabbat together in anticipation of and preparation for Sunday's gala Concert.
