Neve Shir womens' choir has kept its activities through Zoom and live rehearsals whenever possible through the global Covid-19 pandemic. We returned to our routine schedule in May 2021 and have since participated in four projects and are preparing for exciting concerts in winter 2021 and beyond. We are delighted to see our audience again healthy and happy.
Women's Choir of Equal Voices
We are a women's choir from Israel. As young girls, most of us were part of Neve Shir children's choir, established and conducted by Nathan Margalit in 1961 in Petach Tikva.
Anat Dor, our late conductor's niece, brought us together in 2006 for a reunion concert in his honor and rekindled our love for music and choral singing. Our rediscovered family has been joyfully singing together ever since as an active and performing choir, with the municipal support of the choir's birth city, Petach Tikva.
Our repertoire includes a mix of classical music, international folk songs, Israeli and traditional Jewish songs, and contemporary music.
Conductor Anat Dor holds a Master's degree in Music. Her thesis focused on the ethnic Jewish songs of Yemen. She is a music teacher, conductor of several choirs, and an active member of the wider choir community in Israel. Among her many activities, Anat is a Supervisor of Music Studies at the Ministry of Education.
