One-Cantor Show: On The Cantor’s Couch

University Synagogue

In this one-person musical show, Cantor Mendelson, a master story teller, paints a picture of 1950’s Borough Park, Brooklyn, NY. It was a time when Jews would flock to the synagogue to hear the golden voices of cantors as if it were a concert hall. While Mendelson didn’t have it easy as a child, he uses it for terrific comedic effect. He recounts a relatable story of a childhood riddled with anxiety and doubt, mixed with joyous memories of music and celebration. Cantor Mendelson’s collaborator and an accompanist will be Cantor Jonathan Comisar. Directed by Tony-nominated Eleanor Reissa.

This event is made possible by the Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. It is co-sponsored with University Synagogue and The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music.

Test Kitchen: Decolonize Music Theory through Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim and Juliette Bellocq
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab graphic designer Julliet Bellocq and founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
