Octarium has been an integral part of our High Holiday services at Congregation B'nai Jehudah in Overland Park, KS. They have helped to transport me to another plane on those very special and holy days. They help transmit the gravity of the day.

I have performed as a musician with Octarium and also heard them at one of their concerts. I am amazed and transfixed by the power and beauty of their singing. With only a few rehearsals, they perform flawlessly for the High Holy Days at my temple, Congregation B'nai Jehudah. I also had the privilege of conversing with them, and they are all kind and gracious.

It's not every day that my family and I choose to sit towards the front at services. When Octarium is there - we try to sit as close as possible. Their voices are beautiful and their showmanship connects us to both the music and the spiritual nature of why we're there.

Even with "substitute" singers Octarium is better than your average choral ensemble. Only Krista Blackwood would think that minor misses could mar the performance of Kansas City's best eight member (or almost any number of members) a capella group. The rest of us didn't notice - too enthralled by the music.
They sang everyone's favorites, and the crowd was duly pleased. Actually, since everyone got to pick their favorites for the program (Listeners' Choice), this was more or less inevitable. Nontheless, I'm sure there were many who came away with new favorites as Octarium did their usual superb job of lending intimacy, good humor and class to a wide variety of music from many genres.
The venue, St Elizabeth's in KCMO, is also one of my local favorites for vocal performances providing just the right mix of depth and resonance to everything from a three-voice chant to a triumphant chorus.
You should go and listen.

Our congregation has had the great fortune to have Octarium as our holiday choir singing alongside our cantor for as many years as I can remember. Octarium's voices elevate the beauty of our holy days and help create moments of both solemness and joy. I am sure that their work in other settings is equally as beautiful as their participation in our holiday services. My hope is that they will continue to be able to share their music with our congregation, the Kansas City community and beyond for years to come.

When the Octaruim sing on the High Holy days, it sounds so angelic almost as if the angels themselves are singing with them.

I have had the extrodinary pleasure for eight years of being in the pews as Octarian has added their voices to enrich a worship experience. I have had the opportunity to travel fairly extensively and to see and experience others in the role that Octarian has been filling. I can without hesitation tell everyone that what Octarian provides is without exception an extrodinary experience. We would be far poorer without Octarian's participation.

Each year, Octarium provides a rich and beautiful backdrop for our most important holidays of the year. Our synagogue is fortunate to have this very professional group located in our city. They create a full-bodied sound that helps set the tone for our entire service. Additionally, they are always a pleasure to watch. Their director exhibits true poise and grace in her leadership of this group. This is a very unique group!
