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.
