The world-famous 50-strong Zemel Choir from London has been delighting UK and international audiences since it was established by Dudley Cohen in 1955. They will sing an eclectic mix from their vast repertoire spanning musical theatre to Jewish liturgical pieces.
Dr Marian Prinsley, President of the Norwich Hebrew Congregation, said: “Thanks to the kindness and generosity of the Cathedral of St John the Baptist, this will be a truly interfaith event. We are honoured that we will be joined by Bishop Alan Hopes, Cathedral Dean Fr David Paul, the Lord Mayor of Norwich and the Sheriff of Norwich.
“The event is to help us raise funds for the synagogue renovation and for the creation of what will be the Norwich Jewish Community and Heritage Centre. Norwich has important Jewish history going back almost 1000 years and we are hoping through our fundraising to be able to display this history, as well as the present positive and tolerant interfaith relationships we now have within the city. Do join us for what promises to be an exciting evening of music.”
