I would be glad to be in touch with your program committee, cantor or whomever in the community schedules music-related programming.
Generally, in my programs, I do both narration and presentation of the music. If your congregation has a cantor or cantorial soloist, I would be honored to include your musical colleague in the program as well.
SOME PERFORMANCE POSSIBILITIES FOR YOUR COMMUNITY
Sermon in a Song—an interactive musical program where the audience matches my songs to a list of sermon topics. Lots of lively conversation!
Broadway Bible—a program that combines beloved show tunes with familiar Biblical and midrashic tales. Torah study from a completely different perspective!
The Jewish Songwriters of the Golden Age of the American Songbook—programs which combine music and stories about the songwriters and there’s always a singalong at the end! See below, right, for some of the available programs.
**All of the songwriters concerts are also available as a stand-alone programs featuring each individual composer/lyricist or songwriting team.**
