London Jewish Male Choir

London Jewish Male Choir

One of the foremost Jewish choirs in the world, the London Jewish Male Choir has a long history of entertaining audiences with high quality performances of a broad range of Jewish music. Our repertoire includes music sung in Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, Russian, and English.

The choir is currently enjoying a renewal with young dynamic Musical Director, Michael Etherton, the addition of fresh modern repertoire and several fresh singing talents including Chazzan (Cantor) Steven Leas. In 2004, the choir appeared at Wembley Conference and promoted a sell-out concert at the new ArtsDepot venue with the four piece group "Shir". In January 2005 the choir toured Florida to packed houses, performing with top Chazzanim (cantors) including, Moshe Schulhof, Gideon Zelermyer and Benjamin Warschawski.

Founded in 1926, the choir developed a reputation of excellence first under the founding conductor Isadore Berman then after the war under Martin White and famously under conductor Manny Fisher who took the choir to new heights. In 2006 the choir celebrated 80 years of singing with the release of a "Best Of" CD including recordings made in the 1920's, 1930's through to new tracks recorded during 2005. During this anniversary year, the choir performed twice in Trafalgar Square, in Cardiff, Croydon, an inspiring concert in Enschede, Holland and finally in front of a packed audience at St. John's Smith Square.

Throughout the years, the LJMC has traveled extensively around the UK and has performed in London's most prestigious concert halls, including the Royal Festival Hall, The Royal Albert Hall, The Wigmore Hall and St. John's Smith Square. The choir regularly appears on TV and radio recently featuring in the documentary "Because I Sing" broadcast on Channel 4. Internationally the choir has sung in Israel, USA, Germany, Holland, South Africa, Poland and Belgium.
