“The Divas on the Bima possess the rare combination of high levels of both artistry and menschlickeit (kindness). The diverse selection of music is enriching and sublime, and the performances exude warmth and artistry.  The show features four power-singers who serve as Hazzanim, each of whom is able to show the incredible range of their talent, and when they sing all together it brings the house down.”
Hazzan Joanna Dulkin, Adath Jeshurun Congregation, Minneapolis, MN

“A magnificent evening not to be missed. Four exceptionally gifted cantors/performers expertly perform a variety of musical genres. Divas on the Bimah thrills its audience each and every time.” Hazzan Stephen J. Stein Executive Director, Cantors Assembly

“Divas on the Bima” are today’s answer to beautiful, exciting, and wonderfully Jewish musical productions.  Do not miss them!”
