Augustina Kapoti is looking forward to working as the Junior Conducting Fellow of the Zemel Choir for the 2019/2020 season. Augustina studied Musicology at the School of Philosophy in the University of Athens. She has been distinguished in two orchestral conducting Masterclasses/Competitions: New York 2014 and Graz 2017. Augustina was accepted to pursue a Master’s Degree in Orchestral Conducting from both the Boston Conservatory and Bard College-Conservatory of Music in New York receiving a full scholarship. She graduated with a Master’s Degree in Orchestral and Choral Conducting where her teachers included Harold Farberman and Dr.James Bagwell. During her studies in New York she also had the opportunity to attend Composition classes with the prestigious composers George Tsontakis and Joan Tower. Two of her compositions were selected to be performed by the ‘’Da Capo Chamber Players’’ and notable reviews followed. While in New York, she met and was invited to follow Maestro Jeffrey Milarsky in his rehearsals and concerts.
Augustina had the honour to pursue her second Master’s Degree in Choral Conducting with Simon Halsey, CBE at the University of Birmingham in the U.K. and before graduating she was appointed Music Director and Conductor of the Northfield Notes Community Choir.

Joining The Zemel Choir

We rehearse every Monday evening (with the exception of Bank Holidays and Jewish festivals) in North London.To maintain the high standard for which we are known, potential choristers are expected to audition with the Musical Director after they have attended a few rehearsals. If you enjoy singing Jewish music and have got some experience, we would love to hear from you. To help with the learning process of new music, we provide rehearsal tracks of most pieces that we sing, so that members can practice their parts between rehearsals.  If you were unable to attend the recent new members evening, but would like to join the choir, just come along to the next rehearsal. We look forward to meeting you……
