The San Diego Jewish Men's Choir
The San Diego Jewish Men's Choir (SDJMC) has been in existence for over 15 years. It is made up of a solid group of more than 25 volunteers from various walks of life, backgrounds, and ages. The members share a common goal, the preservation and promotion of Jewish choral music. They fulfill this mission through concerts, recordings, community outreach events, and appearances at festivals. The choir is affiliated with the Center for Jewish Culture and Creativity in Los Angeles, a non-profit organization sharing similar goals.
Under the musical direction of Ruth Weber, the men's choir presents over 30 concerts a year throughout the Southern California area. They perform music of all styles including, liturgical, pop, folk, gospel and musical theater, and sing in the Hebrew, English, Yiddish, and Ladino languages.
SDJMC recorded their first album: "Heritage", a compilation of historically significant Jewish choral music in 2014. The album was a winner in the 2014 Global Music Awards. Part of the proceeds from the sale of each album will go toward distributing free CD's of this music to Jewish senior homes, senior centers, and religious schools throughout the U.S. so that the music can be enjoyed for generations to come.
The choir's second album, KOCHI, a musical celebration of the history of the Jews in India will be releasing July 2015 and features music arrangements by 2014 Grammy Award winning composer/producer Ricky Kej! Proceeds from this album will go to the Gabriel Project Mumbai, a JDC Entwine project which provides nutrition, literacy and basic hygiene needs to thousands of children in the slums of Mumbai, India.
Please join our mailing list to be notified of the release of this album, and future concerts and events sponsored by the San Diego Jewish Men's Choir. http://www.sdjmc.org
