The Zamir Chorale of Boston, under the direction of founder and Artistic Director Joshua Jacobson, performs concerts in the Greater-Boston area and throughout the Northeast. A typical season comprises 10-15 performances. This season’s repertoire includes a concert of “Halleluyah” and a celebration of the 400th anniversary of the publication of Salamone Rossi’s “Ha-shirim Asher Lishlomo.”
The 60-member adult chorale, dubbed a “virtuoso outfit” by the Boston Globe and recognized by American Record Guide as “America’s foremost Jewish choral ensemble,” has remained committed to the highest quality performance of music spanning thousands of years, four continents, and a variety of styles, both popular and classical.
The Zamir Chorale performs throughout the United States, and has also toured Europe and Israel, appearing with the Jerusalem Symphony and Israel Philharmonic Orchestras under Zubin Mehta and Daniel Barenboim. Zamir was featured at the United Nations for the first universal observance of the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust and appeared at the Democratic National Convention. Zamir currently has over 20 recordings on the HaZamir label, ranging from Baroque masterworks to seasonal celebrations.
The Zamir Chorale of Boston is a non-discriminatory organization, and welcomes singers of all faiths. We believe that music should unite people and bring about “Tikkun Olam” (healing the world); therefore membership in the Chorale is open to qualified singers without regard to religion, creed, race, age, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, or disability.
