L – R: Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen, Countertenor, Roslyn Barak, Cantor Emeritus, Temple Emanu-El
Star countertenor Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen, San Francisco’s Temple Emanu-El Cantor Emeritus Roslyn Barak, and others will join Francesco Spagnolo in an evening of song and dialogue, exploring synagogue repertoires—ancient, old, and new as well as repertoire from the Baroque to modern. Our guests will discuss the evolution of the cantorial soloist, changes in gender perception and roles, and how they bridge the worlds of the sacred, operatic and other repertoire.

About Jews & Music (JAM)
Since its inception in 2015, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale’s Jews & Music initiative has taken audiences on journeys of discovery that deepen connections for Jews and non-Jews to historical, political and social contexts that inform the creation of music. Philharmonia is the only major American orchestra with a permanent initiative dedicated to exploring the relationship between Jews and music from the 17th to the 21st centuries.
Here’s how we’ll stay safe together
Bring your mask, vaccination card and ID. All attendees 12 and older will need to show proof of vaccination before entering the theater and are required to wear a mask during performances. Currently, mask exemptions are in effect for performers, who will only remove their masks when actively performing and will be socially distanced from audience members.
