Event Information

A Cal State East Bay Tradition Continues

A selection of California's finest high school chamber choirs will take the stage in the CSUEB Music Building Recital Hall for performances, adjudications, and clinics. The choirs sing for each other and work with choral adjudicators in this inspiring day of music making, culminating in a performance by CSUEB's East Bay Singers. Our guest adjudicator this year is Ofer dal Lal, Director of the San Francisco Bay Area Chamber Choir. Performances begin at 9:30 a.m. and continue until 12 p.m. Free and open to the public.

Ofer dal Lal is a conductor living in the San Francisco Bay Area and working internationally. Mr. dal Lal leads the San Francisco Bay Area Chamber Choir, WomenSing, and the Mission Peak Chamber Singers. Mr. dal Lal first came into prominence as the musical director and conductor of the Jerusalem Oratorio Choir – an organization of five choirs consisting of 150 singers and one of Israel’s leading non-professional choirs. Among the ensembles he has conducted are the world-renowned Stuttgart Chamber Choir and Classical Philharmonic Orchestra (Germany), Berlin Radio Choir (Germany), Oregon Bach Festival Choir and Orchestra (Oregon, USA), Salt Lake Vocal Artists (Utah, USA), Israel Philharmonic Choir (Israel), Voces Nordicae (Sweden), Studium Canticum (Cagliari, Italy) and Manado State University Choir (Indonesia). In August 2013 he was selected as one of 12 conductors from all over the world to take part in a special project entitled “Conducting 21C: Musical Leadership for a New Century”, part of the Music and Humanity Symposium in Stockholm. In 2012 Ofer dal Lal was invited to conduct the Jerusalem Academy Chamber Choir in their performance of the Israeli premiere of “Loquimini Veritatem” by composer Sarah Shoham, at the opening concert of the Mediterranean Zimriya (World Assembly of Choirs in Israel).
