Coordinator Bio:

Sophie Lee Landau is thrilled to be conducting HaZamir Houston!  Sophie Lee was in HaZamir Manhattan/NYC for 6 years, then joined Zamir Chorale for 4 years when she attended the Cooper Union. Upon graduation, Sophie Lee moved to Houston, TX to work as a chemical engineer.  She attended HaZamir Houston rehearsals and assisted for 2 years, and has taken over as the full-time conductor this year. HaZamir Houston has grown from 2 to 6 to 8 students in her time there, and is going strong!  Sophie Lee will continue to be a strong supporter of the incredible Zamir Choral Foundation, along with her mother and sister who are devoted members of Zamir, the board, and Zamir Noded.

Sophie Lee is very involved in other areas of the performing arts, as well. She is the High School theater director at Beren Academy, the local Orthodox day school. She is a member of the Sweet Adeline’s barbershop chorus in Houston. She also loves to play the harp!
