Rina Firstenburg 1931-2001 the legendary manager of the Gevatron who was also called 'The Mother of the Gevatron', was one of the main founders of the Chorus in 1947 and was a singer herself up until the mid 90's. Some would say only because of her devotion and consistency the Gevatron managed to last all those years, and threw its weaker times too.
The Gevatron was known for its very unique sound and voices. Four singers with very outstanding voices gave the Gevatron its special touch:
with her clear Russian-like Soprano
with his Bold operaicTenor
has a Lyric Soprano
has a warm Alto
In the 90's Hanoch Albalak joined the group, he has a high special Tenor. Hanoch performs on each show the very unique 'Yom Kipur' pray calls Unetane Tokef written by Rabi Amnon from Magenza.This pray was
given a second and extra meaning by Yair Rosenblum in the 70's after the Yom Kipur War of Israel in 1973. Rosenblum wrote the extraordinary melody to it which was then sung by Hanoch ever since.
(Tamar, Nika and Hanoch all sing in the Gevatron nowadays)
