Kol Kinor Choir was formed in September 1990, under the able musicianship of Joyce Rothschild and Jane Ward. Alexander Knapp is the honorary Patron. Jacob Fifer is the musical director and principal conductor.

We are a small mixed voice choir of singers who perform, enjoy and enthuse about Jewish music. We have a rich and diverse repertoire covering many aspects of Jewish culture including liturgical and synagogue pieces set to modern, traditional and folk arrangements. We have Jewish and non-Jewish members.

The choir sings in Yiddish, Hebrew, English and Ladino, and complement this with commentaries on the history and significance of each piece in relation to musical development and religious emphasis within individual festivals and services.

Over the years, the choir has performed all over the country in many varied venues including cathedrals, churches, synagogues, music festivals, City of Birmingham events; the choir has also sung in the USA.

We select each programme to suit the occasion and audience, with the emphasis on, and commitment to, sharing Jewish music with others.
