Choir Le Chant Sacré

(Strasbourg, France) Male voice choir composed of about twenty passionate singers whose main repertoire is Ashkenazi Jewish liturgy, the central Europe and german jewish tradition.

The choir is placed under the direction of Mr. Roy AZOULAY, a professional choir conductor graduated at the Academy of Music in Jerusalem.
Curently, the Chairman of the Choir is Mr Jean Pierre SIMON.

Our choir is one of the last synagogue choir in France performing every Shabbat services (friday evening and saturday morning) and all festivals with a permanent professional ‘Hazan (Cantor), Mr. Isaac OUAKNINE, at the Great Synagogue in Strasbourg, LA SYNAGOGUE DE LA PAIX (The Peace Synagogue).
Thus, we perpetuate the jewish liturgy of Ashkenazi rite, especially of Alsace (eastern France, near the german border) and participate to preserve the specific cantorial music of the Rhine Valley.
We also perform at the synagogue on special events : official and patriotic commemorations as well as wedding ceremonies, accompanied by professional musicians.
