A fascinating program sharing the sacred music of two faith traditions.
Deepti Navaratna is known for her ‘particularly lovely and bewitching voice’ (Boston Globe, 2010) and rare mix of classical wisdom, expressivity and virtuosity. From South Indian classical repertoire to avant garde contemporary compositions, she displays a unique versatility that is distinctly her own. Deepti is the first South Indian classical musician to be awarded a merit scholarship and cash prize to study World Music and Contemporary Improvisation at the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music. She was the first South Indian classical vocalist to be selected to represent India in a month-long residency at the Music Omi International Music residency for which she was awarded the Rajshekar Parikh Fellowship as well.
After a varied career in music as a classical singer both on the opera stage and in concert, as a teacher of voice and music theory, and as a choral conductor/music director, Cantor Schloss began his journey into the world of Jewish music as a singer and composer. In 2006, he composed his first extended setting of Shabbat evening liturgy, Avodat Hayom, combining traditional liturgy and modern poetry with musical elements of eastern European nusach and chazzanut, Israeli and Sephardic folk music, classical and twentieth century Reform repertoire and contemporary pop and jazz.
He received his investiture and a Masters Degree in Sacred Music from the School of Sacred Music at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music from Cornell University in Ithaca and a Master of Music Degree in Vocal Performance from the New England Conservatory of Music.+ More... - Less...
