The internationally acclaimed, award-winning Nigun Chamber Ensemble (“Nigun” in Hebrew means melody) is devoted to the preservation of a unique musical heritage stemming from Jewish composers and their communities in pre-war Eastern Europe.
The ensemble’s programs include Jewish classical and folk traditions ranging from klezmer to chamber music, art song and liturgical music.
Founded in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1991 by its artistic director and internationally renowned pianist Yelena Neplok, the group had its American premiere at New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall in the festival “Jewish Music: Renaissance and Remembrance” and was met with great critical acclaim. The Nigun Ensemble has been enthusiastically received in numerous Russian and international music festivals and concerts in many of the most prestigious music halls. The group has been featured on national radio and television broadcasts in Russia and in the U.S. The ensemble has received a number of excellent reviews in the press and is a member of NEFA’s New England States Touring Roster.

Nigun’s interpretation of folk music, classical music, and art song has impressed audiences and achieved great critical acclaim:
