Traditional Avinu Malkeinu – kind of!

This performance of the traditional Kol Nidre prayer Avinu Malkeinu was taken from our Sept. 22, 2015 “Alternative Kol Nidre Service” at Congregation Beth El in La Jolla, CA. The setting is traditional but the arrangement is anything but traditional. I’m playing the bass flute, the ensemble includes violin, cello, contrabass and keyboards and the vocals are lead by Roberta Winston. I have been honored to be the Musical Director for this service since its inception eight years ago by now, most of the music that we do is my own work.  Hope you enjoy this performance. I’m writing grants right now to try and get a commercial recording of this music released on CD. Wish me luck! If there are any angels out there who would like to step up with some funding, please reach out to me.

Simchat Torah – perhaps my favorite holiday!

After the grueling High Holiday season, I love coming to Simchat Torah both because it means that the season is ending, the year is ending and the new one truly beginning.  This panoramic shot is from #CongregationBethEl in La Jolla where I got to play #sopranosaxophone with my Rabbi, #RabbiPhilipGraubart.  L’shana tova, eveyone!
