Zemel Choir Celebrates its 51st Birthday

October 23 2006 (Jewswire.com) - Now in its 51st year, Britain's leading mixed voice Jewish choir, presents a mixed bag of choral goodies at a concert at Belsize Square Synagogue on November 12th.

The concert follows Benjamin Wolf’s appointment as choirmaster at the synagogue, and includes a performance by a new male-voice quartet comprising young soloists Marc Finer, Eliot Alderman and Benjamin Seifert, joined by Benjamin Wolf. Finer, Alderman and Seifert are already well known to Jewish audiences as cantors and cantorial soloists.

With music ranging from Yiddish opera to close-harmony, and including jazzy arrangements of Chanukah tunes, this promises to be a fun concert not to be missed.

The choir will perform extracts from Samuel Alman’s 1911 opera, King Ahaz, a choral work that has not been performed in public since 1912! There will also be excerpts from Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance, recently created for a full-scale, off-Broadway performance.

Tickets £14 (concessions £12.50) are available from 020 8906 1318 or zemelchoir@hotmail.com
