Nine choirs from around the world and many more from around Israel - 750 voices in all - get together starting this Monday for the 21st Zimriya choir convention, continuing through August 9. The almost daily concerts and workshops taking place at Atzmaut Hall at the Mt. Scopus campus of the Hebrew University are all free, starting with the opening concert there Monday night at 9.
