Nicky Gluch is looking forward to working with the Zemel Choir as Junior Conducting Fellow after having made a big impression with us at the 2017 Lewandowsky Festival in Berlin. Nicky made her conducting debut with the Eastern Sydney Chamber Orchestra and has since gone on to conduct choral-orchestral projects of her own. Having undertaken a Masters degree, Nicky’s interests include exploring aspects of conducting in the 21st Century and this year Nicky started working on her PhD.

Zemel Gallery > European Jewish Choral Festival in St.Petersburg

5th European Jewish Choral Festival in St.Petersburg took place from July 5th-9th, 2017, it was an outstanding event - the 5th European Jewish Music and Choir Festival. On the banks of the Neva River, the best Jewish choirs from Europe, Israel and Russia met together to celebrate Jewish music. Jewish choral singing has already conquered London, Vienna, and Rome, and finally came to St. Petersburg. Spectators enjoyed stirring Klezmer music, choral polyphony in Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, at the best city musical venues: the Concert Hall of the Mariinsky Theatre, Saint Petersburg State Academic Capella. Free concerts were held at the halls of Petrikirche and Grand Choral Synagogue and were presented as a gift from the Festival’s participants to the city. The Vienna Klezmer Orchestra – the only full klezmer orchestra in the world – participated in the Festival for the first time.
