Join us for our continuing series of sacred music inside B’nai Israel’s majestic sanctuary. Tonight, Judith Berkson takes an open-minded musical approach to an ancient Jewish repetoire.
Judith Berkson is a soprano, pianist, composer, and cantor living in Brooklyn, New York. She teaches liturgical music at Old Westbury Hebrew Congregation in New York, and cantorial music and Hebrew liturgy count among her earliest inspirations.
As a teenager, Judith was drawn to the experimental composers, the avant-gardists, and the people working with extended technique. Singing and playing in jazz and experimental bands through the late 1990s, she curtailed much of this activity in the early 21st century to concentrate primarily on solo performance, looking anew at the possibilities for voice with keyboard accompaniment. The result is an approach entirely her own. Tonight, she will perform a reworked cantoral repertoire, accompanying herself on pump organ, and will be joined by modern klezmer masters Frank London on trumpet (Klezmatics, Klezmer Brass Allstars) and Michael Winograd on clarinet (Yiddish Art Trio, Sandaara).
