Cantor Shimon Craimer, who has been called "the rising star of Jewish music in the United Kingdom" by the Chief Rabbi of the British Commonwealth, was born in London in 1978. During his student years at London's Trinity College of Music, where he earned his degree, he sang in the college choirs, performing in many important concert venues. He has appeared with several of London's Jewish choral groups and as a member of the accompanying quartet for such popular cantorial performers as Avram Fried and Mordechai Ben-David. Craimer has also conducted the Hendon Adath Yisroel Congregation choir and served as a lay cantor at several orthodox synagogues in Greater London, and he has performed as soloist in cantorial concerts throughout Great Britain. He has also officiated as well as sung at concerts in Israel (with Avram Fried), the United States (with the Negina and Neshoma bands), Gibraltar, Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium, and the Irish Republic. From 1999 until 2003 Craimer served as cantor of Edgware United Synagogue in London, succeeding such internationally well-known cantors as Joseph Malovany, and he officiates regularly at celebrations and special services in London's Jewish community. He currently serves as cantor of the Riverdale Jewish Center, in Riverdale, New York.
