Although engaged in the retail industry in Australia for 40 years, my first love was singing.
As a teenager I joined the Perth Hebrew Congregation male choir under the direction of a former music teacher from Germany who encouraged me to study opera singing.
When the West Australian Opera Company was founded in 1967 I was chosen as principal tenor and for the next 7 years performed 8 major roles with the company before retiring due to pressure of work and family prioities.
Since making aliyah in 1999 I opened a music studio as a singing teacher. About 1 year ago I closed the studio to spend more time blogging about Israel and Jewish life.
