A Message from Ofer

Devoted friends of WomenSing!

More and more I am learning what an ardent group of supporters you are. It is a joyous moment for me as I join you, who know and appreciate the power of choral music, of live performance and of community.

When I first heard WomenSing in performance, I was moved to feel the music radiating from each and every singer. It is rare to sense such collective dedication, love, and zeal in an ensemble this large. I'm excited to lead such a vibrant group-diverse spirits and characters, unified in sonority.

The rest, as the saying goes, is history.
