  • Zemel Choir, London The Zemel Choir, established by Dudley Cohen in 1955, is proud of its international reputation as one of the world's finest mixed-voice Jewish choirs. Our wide-ranging repertoire embraces all the traditional Jewish cultures, Ashkenazi, Sephardi, Yiddish and Israeli. We regularly perform in major venues throughout the U.K. and overseas, and, besides singing well-known favourites, are particularly proud to present new music, often specially commissioned, from contemporary composers. Recent highlights include two performances at Westminster Abbey: a service to commemorate the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau (February 2015) and a ‘Service of Solemn Remembrance and Hope on the 75th Anniversary of Kristallnacht ‘(2013). In 2012 we hosted the first European Jewish Choral Festival, an event which has since taken place in Vienna and Rome, and we hosted it again in 2015. Our Celebrate with Song event, which aims to raise the profile of Jewish choral music through workshops and performances, is now in its eighth year. Its most recent installments took place in collaboration with the London Jewish Cultural Centre and West London Synagogue (2013) and London’s new Jewish cultural hub, JW3 (February 2015). Through this work we introduce Jewish music to mixed faith children and their families, which encourages the development and love of music with a religious or spiritual theme in young people. The Choir has maintained its reputation as a result of professional musical direction, and a strong commitment to rehearsals by its members. We come together not only to sing, but to be part of a warm and friendly social group. We are always happy to welcome new members. To find out more about us visit our website.
