On Wednesday evening, June 14, 2017, the Zamir Chorale of Boston will explore the beauty and variety of musical settings of the biblical Psalms with a performance of awePsalm, a concert honoring Zamir’s outgoing chairman, Robert Snyder, at 7:30 pm, at Temple Emanuel in Newton.
AwePsalm will feature the 55-voice chorale with symphonic orchestra and include ancient Sephardic Psalmody and compositions by Salamone Rossi, Leonard Bernstein (Chichester Psalms), Benjie Ellen Schiller, Jeremiah Klarman, and others. A new work, composed for this concert by our honoree, will be debuted that evening.
Performing on concert stages throughout North America, Europe, and Israel, the award-winning Zamir Chorale of Boston awakens audiences to the exotic rhythms of the Middle East to the majestic anthems of 19th-century European synagogues, from the romances of Spain to the chants of Yemen, and from contemporary American jazz to the much-loved Yiddish tunes of Jewish musical theater.
Founded in 1969 by Joshua Jacobson, one of the world’s leading authorities on Jewish choral music, the Zamir Chorale of Boston’s “music with a mission” brings the joy of Jewish music to audiences that transcend age, religious and ethnic background. Zamir sets the bar for musical excellence.
