    “While seeking to express my creativity and Jewish identity through classical music, I realized that as a cantor I would have the unique opportunity to interact with people in a meaningful and musical way. Hearing my own choral composition performed by my classmates fulfills some of my greatest hopes – to share new music, inspire others, and contribute to the world of Jewish music.” — Ben Ellerin, Cantorial ’15
