Meet the Singers
Arriving to perform at the White House Hanukkah party
“I would be at a loss if I had to mention a choir that sings with more devotion than Zemer Chai or a choir with a more intense and deep connection between its singers and its conductor.”
Director, Jerusalem Academy Chamber Choir
