The Carmel Valley Library Family Concert Series presents the San Diego Jewish Men’s Chorus Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m.
The San Diego Jewish Men’s Choir (SDJMC) has been in existence for over 16 years. It is made up of a solid group of more than 25 singers from various walks of life, backgrounds and ages. The members share a common goal, the preservation and promotion of Jewish choral music. They fulfill this mission through concerts, recordings, community outreach events, and appearances at festivals. The choir is affiliated with the Center for Jewish Culture and Creativity in Los Angeles, a nonprofit organization sharing similar goals.
Under the musical direction of Ruth Weber, the men’s choir presents over 30 concerts a year throughout the Southern California area. They have been featured on the Chabad Telethon, on the documentary Forever Strong, released July 2015, as back-up singers for the Latin Grammy Award-winning children’s artist Mr. G’s album The Mitzvah Bus, and on Grammy Award-winner Ricky Kej’s album Shanti Samsara for Environmental Consciousness. Their recent Jewbilation performance in Los Angeles was filmed by Jewish Life Television and will be aired nationwide shortly.
The library is located at 3919 Townsgate Dr., 92130. For more information, please contact the Carmel Valley Branch Library at 858-552-1668.
