Cantor Linda Hirschhorn – Vocal Workshop & Concert
Like other dimensions of Jewish ritual and tradition, cantorial music has a rich history. The role of the Jewish cantor as a musical and spiritual leader emerged during the seventh century. While many of the prayers and songs that cantors lead today come from those ancient sounds, there are also modern melodies in the mix.
Cantor Linda Hirschhorn embodies that bridge between ancient and contemporary, spiritual and relatable. She is the director and primary composer for Vocolot, the first-ever Jewish women’s a cappella ensemble; she organized and directed the first Jewish Women’s International Chorus in Kiev in 1994; and from her role as cantor at Temple Beth Sholom in San Leandro, she continues sharing her voice and her love for music with others, including at a vocal workshop and concert at Congregation Beth Israel in Carmel. Sing along, or just listen.
2:30-4pm vocal workshop / 7:30-9pm concert
