Kolot Shluvim (“Combined voices”) Women Ensemble
Founded in 2003, the choir is rehearsing in the Tel Mond Community Center. The 20 singers of the ensemble are studying voice lessons. The repertoire includes classical music from the Renaissance to our time, Israeli songs in special A Capella arrangements, and Contemporary music from around the globe. The Ensemble is a memeber of “Hallel”, the organization of Israel’s choirs, and performs throughout the Country in churches and music centers. The Ensemble regularly participates at workshops and choir conventions and has been praised for his contribution to the senior citizens of Israel for concerts held at old age homes. Its performances at numerous public events and ceremonies has earned it repeated praise.
The ensemble WON the prestigious national competition named after Leah Porat Gore for 2013!
The founder, musical director, and conductor of the Ensemble is Ronit Eizenberg. Besides conducting, Ronit also sings and plays the piano, and arranges some of the music for the Ensemble. She graduated from the Rubin Academy of Music, Tel Aviv and from the College of Music at Lewinsky College, and has since participated in workshops under such conductors as Maestro Gary Bertini and Maestro Eric Ericson. She has studied conducting male choirs in Germany, in the course of a long study tour which was specially planned for her. Today, Ronit is conductor and musical director of two choirs: The Kolot Shluvim women Ensemble, and the Haifa Chamber Choir (the latter, since 2000).
