Event description
Join us for a new online three-part series, "A Choral Rainbow," featuring choruses from diverse and under-represented communities.

About this event

This season, in response to the alarming rise in racism, antisemitism, and other forms of prejudice, we are even more committed to using our resources to expose our audiences (and ourselves) to music representing different cultures, ethnicities, and ways of thinking. With that in mind, we will present an online series called "A Choral Rainbow," featuring video performances and conversations with the conductors of choruses from diverse and under-represented communities.

“Diversity” can reference and celebrate culture, race, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, sexual identity, age, and religious ideals, among others. Our program was inspired by initiatives with a consortium of colleagues within the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA). Three one-hour programs, each featuring three choirs, will air in November, February, and April. Zamir’s Artistic Director, Joshua Jacobson, will serve as master of ceremonies. Each choir’s conductor will present and comment on video performances of their unique repertoire. Josh and the conductors will also discuss issues of tokenism, cultural ownership and misappropriation, recontextualization, hybridization, and multiculturalism. They will explore together how to debunk stereotypes and assumptions related to cultural content.

Our first program, to be held in cooperation with the Consulate General of Israel to New England on November 22, will feature David Hodgkins, conductor of Coro Allegro—Boston's LGBTQ+ and allied classical chorus; Micah Hendler, conductor of The Jerusalem Youth Chorus—a choral and dialogue program for Palestinian and Israeli youth in Jerusalem; and Diana Sáez, a leading specialist in the field of Latin American choral music. Watch this promo!

Zamir’s repertoire includes Jewish liturgical pieces, major classical works, music of the Holocaust, as well as Israeli, Yiddish, and Ladino folksongs.
