“From Broadway to the Bima”
Sunday, Oct. 18, 2015
03:00 PM – 05:00 PM
Guests are invited to join Holocaust Museum Houston for The Guild’s annual concert fundraiser, featuring Cantor Mark Perman. Perman came to Houston from Simsbury, CT, a year ago and currently serves Congregation Emanu El as their cantor.
About the Performance
Perman is a native New Yorker and received his bachelor's degree from New York University and later his ordination as cantor from Hebrew Union College - JIR in 1997.
He began his career on Broadway in the 1970s in shows such as "Dude" and "Shenandoah," and he has also performed extensively in voice-overs and on camera commercials over the years as well.Other favorite roles include Emile Debecque in South Pacific and Father in "Children of Eden."
Perman was inspired to become a cantor in part by his involvement with Congregation B'nai Jeshurun in New York City and later found a way to integrate his love of theater and his cantorial calling by creating "From Broadway to the Bima," referencing the area within the sanctuary where the cantor sings and leads the prayers during services. Perman's performances are designed to illustrate how both the cantorial and theatrical worlds intersect. He pays tribute to some of the legendary composers and lyricists who created these time honored classics.
