Zamir's music is enjoyed by people of all ages, religions and races. Founded in 1969 by Joshua Jacobson, one of the world's leading authorities on Jewish choral music, the group is a member of the Greater Boston Choral Consortium and is funded in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and Combined Jewish Philanthropies.


Boston's Jewish Community Chorus

Koleinu, Boston's Jewish Community Chorus (http://www.koleinu.org), is a nearly 100-member chorus of adults of all backgrounds and experience that performs Jewish choral music for audiences throughout Greater Boston. Founded in 2002 by Rev-Hazzan Scott Sokol and Larry Kozinn, its mission is to provide members an opportunity to learn, sing and perform Jewish music in a meaningful way, regardless of their religious affiliation or previous musical experience. Led by artistic director Carol Marton, Koleinu has been praised for its expression, repertoire and the high musical standards it maintains as a nonaudition chorus.
