Zamir Chorale Schedules Auditions

By: MBE

The Zamir Chorale will hold auditions for new members on Monday evening, September 8.

Conducted by renowned Maestro Matthew Lazar, the Zamir Chorale is North America’s oldest Zionist, Hebrew-singing choir,  and as the flagship ensemble of the Zamir Choral Foundation, sets the standard for Jewish choral singing.   Zamir's programs have included works by Renaissance master Salamone Rossi, synagogue classics of the 19th century, art and folk music of Israel, and the premieres of new works by contemporary composers. 

Zamir rehearses on Monday nights from 8 – 10 p.m. at 61 Claremont Avenue (between 119th and 120th Streets on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, one block West of Broadway).  Prospective singers will be expected to demonstrate overall musicianship, with special emphasis on a good musical ear and strong sight-singing ability.

Experienced choral singers with excellent musical skills are encouraged to contact ZamirChorale@ZamirChoralFoundation.org or call 212-870-3335 to schedule an appointment for an audition.
