Sharing in Music

As a cantor, I bring the joy of music to your celebration, event or gathering.

My creative musical programs and workshops offer groups and congregations a variety of musical experiences for entertainment and fund-raising.  Programs include:

The Joy of Music – A full evening’s concert featuring an exciting repertoire.

A Musical Interlude – Short programs of favorites, suitable for after dinner or luncheon entertainment.

Purple Stones – Music and stories from my upcoming book offer glimpses into my life as an individual and as a professional.  Some are gentle musings and others are recollections of defining moments, the mystical, my career and vision.

Finding Your Outer Voice by Singing for Joy – In a warm and supportive atmosphere participants learn to raise their voices in song.  Familiar melodies are employed and all are encouraged to sing with ease.  An accompanist is provided as I teach technique and students sing for each other.  In three short sessions, amazing results are possible.  Everyone can find his or her outer voice by singing for joy.  Private lessons are also available.

The Added Soul – N’shama Y’teirah: A Sabbath Song Program for Congregations and Chavurot – Through a combination of workshops, services and meals, the joy of Shabbat song is discovered.  This program enables participants to learn contemporary and standard synagogue melodies and understand their meaning.  The ideal repertoire is decided upon in discussion with the Rabbi or Chavurah leaders.

My singing for private parties and funraising events, alone or with other talented singers, will draw from the following:

    • Jewish folk music
    • Folk music
    • Standards
    • Oldies
    • Classical
    • Chorale pieces
    • Light opera
    • Broadway
    • Arias
