Sheba Choir

The Sheba Choir was established in 1991 by Shlomo Gronich, who served as artistic director and solo performer with this unique group till 2011. The choir consists of children from the Ethiopian Jewish community, some are new immigrants and some already second generation Israeli natives.

Music and singing is a bridge between peoples and cultures.

Three years ago the Sheba Choir founded a nonprofit organization with the vision of promoting, nourishing and merging Ethiopian and Israeli cultures.
Music is only the tool which develops and promotes the senses of teamwork, excellence and continuity.

Our aim is to bring together kids from different ages and backgrounds, helping build a society with better understanding and acceptance of different, origins, views and behaviors.

The educational work is done in numerous centers throughout Israel, in various Ethiopian communities from Migdal Ha'emek in the North, Kfar Yonah/Netanya, and Mevaseret Zion (near Jerusalem).

The repertoire includes the inspiring rhythms and melodies of Ethiopian music brought over by the children and their families, traditional Jewish music, and original tunes that are specially composed, arranged and commissioned by the Sheba Choir.

The Choir has performed in the USA and Canada, Mexico and many European countries (including the Vatican) and all over Israel.
