Hazzan Abraham Lopes Cardozo, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Oct 24


Hazzan Abraham Lopes Cardozo (former Chief-Cantor of New York's Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue), is the only living person who sang as an adult with this choir (from 1925 to 1939). It is an honor to welcome Hazzan Cardozo to Amsterdam on Sunday, 24 October 2004 in honor of his 90th birthday where he will conduct an intimate soirée:

Date: 24 October 2004
Time: 8pm
Place: Uilenburgerstraat Synagogue, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Price: €25.00
Language: Dutch
Reservations: Email: pig-amsterdam@euronet.nl / Fax: 020-625-4680 (international: +31-20-625-4680)

In October 2003, a historic event in Amsterdam's Portuguese Synagogue took place. The pre-war synagogue choir, "Santo Serviço" was revived after 60 years of silence.

Hazzan Cardozo will lead us through his memories of singing with Santo Serviço for nearly fifteen years. Throughout the program examples of original works will be sung in the authentic pre-war settings. Directly following the program a light reception will be held in honor of Hazzan Cardozo's 90th Birthday.
