The Choir’s members are mainly drawn from synagogue and other Jewish choirs in the Greater London area. Our soloists include several chazanim, notably David Shine, formerly at the North Hendon Adath Yisroel Synagogue and David Rome, the Minister and Chazan of the Catford and Bromley United Synagogue.
The Choir was originally directed by David Hilton and subsequently by Michael Simon, then chazan of the Edgware Yeshurun Synagogue. In 1997 the baton passed to our present Musical Director David Druce.
