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 voices combine to sound like an orchesstral group. You can hear the joy in their performances. They make their performances sound like special occasions.

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.

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.

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.

While I've not been able to see Octarium perform live, I am fortunate to have obtained several of their cds. The sounds and harmonies of Octarium are beautiful, many voices combining to make one lovely voice. I look forward to the day when I will have the opportunity to attend a performance!
