Tugendhaft is a born performer! His amazing voice lends itself to many
different styles. He sounds like both your classical heart wrenching
cantor and a modern opera tenor. All the while crisscrossing the stage
with amazing vibrancy, singing every song with heart- felt emotion.
The Choristers not only pour their hearts into every number but are also
perfectly choreographed. Tugendhaft, the choir, and the orchestra create
an unbelievably unique atmosphere for traditional Jewish songs.
Take a moment to view video clips from their past performances:
The show is absolutely unique and is sure to be enjoyed by all ages and
walks of life. Their audiences have been made up of American, South
African, British, Israeli and Persian Jews. There have been teenagers,
grandparents and everyone in between present……all of whom end up
dancing in the aisles!! We expect this performance to be sold out.
