As a trained musican and a member of B'nai Juhdah's former choir, I always enjoy, not only listtening to the Octarium choir, but also singing along with them at our High Holiday services. Our services are greatly enhanced by Octarium's participation during these services.

Octarium sings for us at Congregation B'nai Jehudah for our High Holiday services. Their enhancement of the spiritual experince is ethereal, moving and brings deeper meaning to the occasions for me. From the first time they graced our gatherings, I felt I stepped into a fresh, open, sacred place. I marvelled at their ability to so faithfully render Hebrew even though they had not previously studied it (I assume). Thank you Octarium. You make our High Holidays more wonderful and meaningful.

My pesonal high holiday experience is always enhanced by virtue of the music and its specific arrangement. This particular time in the year is devoted to reflection and I find no better way to reflect than accomopanied by music.

This group has been playing the role of spiritual musical accompamists at out sysagogues High Holiday Services for 5 or 6 years now. Theyappear as professional musicians both in performance and demeanor. the sounds are angelic, harmonic, and appropriately match the tone of the litergy in each segment of the music. THe music sets the tone of the prayers and they capture it all quite well.

As a teenager who usually listens to popular music, I really enjoy listening to Octarium at our holiday services. The two days of services are very long, but I get wrapped up in the music and time just flies.

I have heard this group sing many times. They approach the music with genuine seriousness. Their sound belies their small size. Tremendous talent, dedication, and beauty.
