Join the first incarnation of the York Region Jewish Choir! Launched by Ashkenaz Foundation in partnership with the Schwartz/Reisman Centre, the group is open to men and women of all ages and backgrounds who wish to sing in multiple languages and experience the thrill and challenge of polyphonic choral music. The group will sing traditional and contemporary songs from a variety of Jewish musical and linguistic styles, as well as classical, popular and world-folk music. Languages sung will include English, Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, Russian, French, and more. The group is conducted by Alexander Veprinsky, former conductor of the Toronto Jewish Folk Choir (2003-2013) an accomplished choral and orchestral conductor and prolific arranger. Alexander received his training at the prestigious Mykola Lysenko Lviv State Conservatory in his native Ukraine. Before immigrating to Canada in 1993 he worked with the Kharkiv Theatre of Operetta, D. Sichinsky Music School in Ivano-Frankivsk, M. Kropyvnytsky Music Theatre of Kirovohrad, among others.
