The Zemel Choir, established in the UK 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. ZC regularly performs 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.

TV and Radio appearances in the UK include:

2005- BBC1 TV Songs of Praise Holocaust Day broadcast.
2001- Radio 4 s Holocaust Day edition of Sunday Worship
1990-The Expressions of Reconciliation and Hope service in York Minster.
1986- Live television and radio broadcast of Kaddish for Terezin from
Canterbury Cathedral.

Over the years the Zemel Choir have made many recordings, the most
recent of which The English Tradition of Jewish Choral Music
conducted by Robert Max with Cantor Moshe Haschel was described as a
fascinating and beautifully performed selection of synagogue music
from the 19th and 20th centuries .

The Zemel Choir have recently completed a European Tour and have in
the past performed in the U.S.A., Canada, Israel, and Eastern and
Western Europe, and in 1993 participated in the Polish Holocaust
Memorial ceremonies in Warsaw and Treblinka to commemorate the 50th
anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. At the 1996 Zimriyah
Choral Festival in Jerusalem the Choir was invited to sing at the
opening ceremony concert which was broadcast live on Israel Radio.

Plans for the near future include 3 concerts in London before the end
of 2006 and beyond that a possible tour of Western Europe in the
spring of 2007.

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, and to find out more about us, visit our website at
