Rebecca performs special cabaret concerts for benefits, community celebrations, and private parties. She peppers these concerts with tidbits of history, jokes, and personal anecdotes. She also engages with the audience, teaching songs and getting folks on their feet. In these ways, and through her gorgeous singing, she brings the music to life.
We will work with you to handcraft a one of a kind, entertaining, and moving musical event. Your audience will leave singing and smiling; they will remember this evening for years to come.
Rebecca specializes in the following repertoire:
- French songs (Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour, etc.)
- German-Jewish cabaret material (Friedrich Hollaender, Mischa Spoliansky, etc.)
- Yiddish cabaret material (Rebecca is an expert!)
- Yiddish folk songs & theater songs (“Oyfn Pripetchik”, “Abi Gezunt” etc.)
- Israeli cabaret songs (Rebecca is an expert!)
- Israeli folk songs
- 1920’s-30’s American standards
Rebecca has English versions of many of the foreign songs available, as per your request. Songs are arranged for piano only, or can be built up to include additional instruments (bass, drums, clarinet, and accordion.) An ordained cantor, Rebecca also knows and loves a wealth of Jewish liturgical music.
