ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD is a co-production of the Zamir Chorale of Boston and Boombox Classroom, a nationally broadcast educational music program for young children. It is structured as a radio-drama with music, featuring the loveable humorous characters of the Boombox Classroom show.

One day in the forest, Jollip the music monster and his friends meet Shira the nightingale. Shira is the conductor of a choir of birds, who sing quite beautifully. Together they fly off on their quest to find a choir for Jollip, who loves to sing, but can't seem to fit in anywhere. They land in Boston where they visit the Solomon Schechter Day School choir and the Zamir Chorale. Jollip hears some wonderful songs and learns about how a chorus makes music. At the end of his quest Jollip fins a song that even monsters can sing.

The CD features a colorful booklet with illustrations of the story. The recording is suitable for ages two to ten.


Since its formation in 1969, this 50-member adult chorale, dubbed a "virtuoso outfit" by the Boston Globe and recognized by American Record Guide as "America's foremost Jewish choral ensemble," has remained committed to the highest quality performance of music spanning thousands of years, four continents, and a variety of styles, both popular and classical. The Chorale's repertoire includes Jewish liturgical pieces, major classical works, music of the Holocaust, newly commissioned compositions by contemporary Jewish composers, and Israeli, Yiddish and Ladino folksongs. Zamir, which means "nightingale" in Hebrew, currently has thirteen recordings on the HaZamir label, ranging from Baroque masterworks to seasonal celebrations. The Chorale's 1999 tour to Eastern Europe is the subject of the PBS documentary Zamir: Jewish Voices Return to Poland, broadcast on public television stations throughout the United States and shown at several film festivals around the country.
