Naomi Faran is the founder conductor of the Moran Choirs. She gives advanced masterclasses in conducting all over the world. Her vision is expressed through successful results in her country: four generations of choirs ages 6-35 are educated with choral music, two of which gained recognition as professionals internationally. She is invited to judge in prestigious competitions, and was awarded the prize of Outstanding Conductor at the first International Choir Competition in Israel.
Singing creates a close, independent connection between the singers and enables them to open their hearts to one another activity with and for the benefit of the community makes up a significant part of the Moran Choir’s life and work. The presentation will share the Moran Choir methodology in the development of musical excellence as a mean of helping underprivileged populations integrate into the mainstream is a predominant social goal. All four of our choirs: the Little‐ones Choir, Youth Choir, Moran Choir and Moran Singers Ensemble combine outstanding singing with a variety of community activities undertaken.
Our meeting will discuss the essence of my vision and my belief as a conductor for 28 years: striving for excellence and unique choral work, alongside with deep deed for the community. We will discuss the great contribution of this kind of work for both sides: choir members receive a broad spectrum of emotional depths that reflects in their singing, and the special groups (children at risk, special needs, etc.) get a chance to feel as an integral part of society.
