HaZamir Preparatory Program

HaZaPrep_Logo_(2)_(1).JPGHaZaPrep, the HaZamir Preparatory Program, is the first Jewish choral preparatory program in North America. HaZaPrep is designed to prepare middle schoolers with the choral skills, music vocabulary, and Hebrew language skills they need to enter into the HaZamir high school program. The HaZaPrep curriculum teaches those skills in an environment that is educational and fun. There are currently HaZaPrep chapters in cities across the United States.



Singers in HaZamir's preparatory program, HaZaPrep, gathered for their annual Shabbaton and Rehearsal Retreat. Below is a photo of HaZamir Madrichim leading the Preppies in a reflective "Yarn Web" activity. As singers prepared for the national concert, they were wearing memory bracelets, created from this yarn, capturing favorite memories of the weekend.


Singers in HaZamir's preparatory program, HaZaPrep, presented an impressive performance highlighting the sophisticated choral skills they have learned.  This performance of "Vaychazkem" by Y. Zarai, was recorded at the 2023 HaZaPrep National Concert.
