HaZamir Community Concerts

Join HaZamir Pittsburgh and HaZamir Karmiel/Misgav, our Partnership2Gether chapter in Israel, for two Community Concerts featuring Pittsburgh teens and Israeli teens singing world-class Jewish choral music together.

HaZamir Pittsburgh is one of 31 chapters of HaZamir: The International Jewish High School Choir. Chapters around the world rehearse a shared repertoire locally each week, and then join together with over 400 teens in New York City every spring for a Festival weekend, including a sold-out performance at either Carnegie Music Hall or the Lincoln Center each year. We are thrilled to hear their repertoire here in Pittsburgh this spring.

Partnership2Gether (P2G) is a sister-city partnership linking the Pittsburgh Jewish community to Karmiel and the Misgav region, in Israel’s central Galilee. Coordinated locally by the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh and supported by the Federation’s Annual Campaign, P2G is a joint program of the Jewish Agency for Israel and the Jewish Federations of North America that aims to build and strengthen relationships between people in Israel and the diaspora. Local P2G programs are approved each year by a joint Steering Committee consisting of members from Pittsburgh and Karmiel/Misgav.

Both HaZamir community concerts are open to the community, free of charge, and followed by a dessert reception.

Global Mission Through Music

HaZamir Pittsburgh is one of 31 chapters of HaZamir: The International Jewish High School Choir. Chapters around the world rehearse a shared repertoire locally each week, and then join together with over 400 teens in New York City every spring for a Festival weekend, including a sold-out performance at either Carnegie Music Hall or the Lincoln Center each year.

HaZamir Pittsburgh also hosts our sister chapter from Karmiel/Misgav every spring, for a week of home hospitality and joint programming between Pittsburgh and Israeli teens, featuring local Community Concerts open to the public.

HaZamir Program

HaZamir is open to all Jewish musical teens in grades 8 – 12 who can match pitch and hold their own in a 4-part arrangement.  Those looking for additional challenges and opportunities can audition for the honors Chamber Choir or try out for solos in the gala concert.  HaZamir also offers a college credit program for juniors and seniors, through the national HaZamir office.

HaZamir Pittsburgh rehearses on Sunday afternoons from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. at the JCC.
