HaZamir is a Jewish musical youth movement that provides a unique opportunity for Jewish teens of all denominations and backgrounds to sing high level Jewish choral music in a fun, social environment.  The Houston chapter is part of the HaZamir network of over 30 HaZamir chapters throughout the U.S. and Israel.  Individual chapters meet weekly in their local cities to learn a common repertoire, then gather together to polish and perform that repertoire at regional, national and international events, culminating in a gala concert with over 350 performers from America and Israel.  Last year’s sold-out gala concert was in Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center and this year’s concert will be at Carnegie Hall on April 3rd.
