In this program, titled Six Moments of the Jewish Liturgy, the mezzo-soprano and synagogue singer Sofia Falkovitch displays all her knowledge in the liturgical singing of the Jewish religion, interpreting six short pieces. A Concordia University alumnus, Sofia Falkovitch enjoys her powerful international success. Falkovitch's remarkable talents extend beyond her voice and her presence on stage, an example is her command of Russian, French, German, Hebrew, Yiddish, Spanish, and English. Her singing range is wide, beautifully colored, while her technique is both textured and complex. Her optimistic and pragmatic outlook foresees a way of coming together, of bridging the division of the by breaking down walls and prejudices, all through the gift of music.
