2013 European Cantors Convention

The European Cantors Association is delighted to announce the next European Cantors Convention.

It will take place in London, at Central Synagogue, from Monday 17 to Thursday 20 June 2013, followed by a Shabbaton 21/22 June. The convention will open with a concert on Monday 17 June.

The Guest cantors will be the incredible composer, practitioner and educator Sol Zim from New York, and the outstanding teacher / practitioner who proved so excellent and popular last year Yehezkel Klang from Israel.

This convention is for practicing prayer leaders of all backgrounds, for choirmasters and choristers and for congregants – and for anyone interested in the music of the synagogue. The subject will be Shabbat Unwrapped: We will be working in small groups with our guest teachers to uncover everything you need to know about the music of Shabbat services.

The registration form is attached – more details are on the website http://www.cantors.eu/8thConvention.html

There is a £15 early booking discount. Please book early and spread the word so we have a good crowd attending to benefit from these wonderful teachers and practitioners.

The convention is supported by the Jewish Music Institute and Central Synagogue
