Review for Octarium, Kansas City, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This musical group has added an extraordinary amount of beauty and soul to our High Holy Days services at The Temple, Congregation B'Nai Jehudah each year that they have provided music. I'm a professional Bassoonist, teacher and adjudicator in the Kansas City area and I've performed with many ensembles in all the years I've been here. None of the choral ensembles I have ever worked with or heard has the beauty and blend of this wonderful group of people. They are so tasteful and musical, and it's also hard to believe that the Hebrew language that they sing for our Services is not native to any of them! If we could have them for all Holidays and Shabbat celebrations, it would be a dream come true!
They also work hand-in-glove with our marvelous Cantor Sharon Kohn, each party making the other's voice seem so effortless.
Please consider this wonderful group for the opportunity to receive grant support, as it would truely be a shame not to support their marvelous efforts at music-making.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Our High Holy Days Services during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur at The Temple, Congregation B'Nai Jehudah. They performed almost continuously for several hours at a time for these important Congregational worship services, singing and chanting along with our Cantor Sharon Kohn in Hebrew.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

There is nothing I can think of to change, they sing so beautifully and add so very much to our worship services.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I was a volunteer during afternoon Musical Meditations on Yom Kippur.
