Pamela Solomon is a Secretary/PA and is married to Solly Solomon. Both their sons
play musical instruments (the bass trombone and the oboe). Pamela comes from a family
of musicians (her father played violin and her aunt the piano in musical evenings
with Zubin Mehta's father - himself a violinist). She was born in Bombay, India,
of Iraqi Jewish descent and was a key singer in the synagogue choir performing mainly
at wedding ceremonies.
Solly Solomon, a qualified ecclesiastical and architectural metal engineer currently
employed as a Fire Prevention Consultant, was born in Calcutta, also of Iraqi Jewish
descent. His musical interests were nurtured at an early age by his father, Eze Solomon,
a leading community figure in the establishment of the first Eastern Jewish Synagogue
in North London, and its first cantor thereafter. Solly is very interested in the
preservation and expression of the Iraqi musical interpretations of songs performed
by the Group and is a very enthusiastic performer along with his wife, Pamela.
